Welcome to live text coverage of Sunday's stage nine of Le Tour.
Not overly long today at 160.5km, but it does include a category one climb and the brutal slog up the Col du Tourmalet. The summit is 2115m. No surprises that it's an hors category climb.
At least there's a nice free wheel into Tarbes to follow.
As ever, there is live text commentary here: news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/oth... and there will be live radio commentary from 1445 BST.
Let me know your thoughts on today's stage. And has anyone ever climbed the Tourmalet?
Enjoy the stage.
