Porte crashes out of the Tour de France

Porte crashes out of the Tour de France

Porte had improved his position to 10th place in this year's race after the eighth stage, 57 seconds behind yellow jersey holder and BMC teammate Greg van Avermaet of Belgium.

So I think the two types of races - a cobbled stage at the Tour and Paris-Roubiax - are probably incomparable: the peloton is different, and then the distances are not the same.

Among the big names to hit the deck were defending champion Chris Froome, who came home in the first chase group, together with Thomas, as well as last year's runner-up, Rigoberto Uran of EF Education First-Drapac, who lost more than a minute on his rivals.

John Degenkolb, victor of Paris-Roubaix in 2015 and whose career was nearly ended when he was hit by a driver while training for the following season, was back to his best over the cobbles today as he won Stage 9 of the Tour de France in Roubaix.

He suited up in 17 games for the Lakers before hip surgery ended a season in which he shot just 37.3 percent from the field. According to ESPN , Thomas will come off the bench - a role in which he thrived in Boston.

Team Sky's twin-pronged attack of Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome, and Mitchelton-Scott's Adam Yates, all managed to finish safely in the main group of general classification contenders, half a minute or so behind the stage nine victor John Degenkolb [Trek-Segafredo].

Although Van Avermaet retains yellow, it was a disappointing day overall for BMC.

"From what we know at this point, it looks like a straightforward injury and one that is quite common in cycling", Max Testa, BMC Racing Team chief medical officer, said later Sunday.

The riders will now have a well-earned rest day in Annecy, before the race heads to the Alps on Tuesday.
