Uran takes Tour stage honours as Porte crashes

Uran takes Tour stage honours as Porte crashes

Thomas had crashed twice while wearing the yellow jersey, on Stages 2 and 4, and on Saturday went straight into a hay bale after he and Froome took a corner too fast on a descent during Stage 8 to Station des Rousses.

"I want to thank the other riders, who did not attack", he added, saying he did not see Aru attacking past him as he raised his arm to ask for assistance.

One of the pre-race favourites, Porte came off his bike on the descent of Mont du Chat and was immediately treated on the side of the road before being carried into an ambulance on a stretcher.

Uran, who has never finished higher than 23rd in the Tour, climbed to fourth in the general classification, 51 seconds behind Bardet.

"It's a massive disappointment", he told VeloNews. "I'm just thinking of the devastation of leaving the Tour and another Grand Tour".

Thomas, known for his hardness, pushed on until down until he reached the valley, but he knew something was "bad" and it was confirmed by the team and race doctor. I crashed at the Giro (d'Italia) on stage nine, and it's stage nine again here.

It was a first career Tour stage win for Uran but, as was befitting of such a day, even that did not come without hardship as the former Team Sky man suffered a mechanical in the final 15 kilometres. "Based on Richie's recovery, we will re-evaluate his program for the rest of the season in consultation with BMC Racing Team management". I just don't know what Majka was doing.

The 31-year-old spent four days in the yellow jersey at the start of the Tour, following his brilliant win in the opening time trial in Dusseldorf.

"I managed to catch the group in front of me after I crashed the second time - I was flying down the mountain", he said with a smile.
