Stage 9 - Tuesday, July 11: Bordeaux - Dax, 170 km
Phase Two of the 93rd Tour begins today as the peloton heads south through the piney woods of Les Landes on this dead flat stage to Dax, hometown of reknowned French road sprinter Andre' Darrigade. The sprinters teams will be looking to keep things under control in the battle for the Maillot Vert as the Pyrenees Mountains loom in the heat haze to the south.
