Live Reporting

All times stated are UK

  1. GC

    1. Yates

    2. Chaves +32

    3. Dumoulin +38

    Froome out of the top ten, we think at least 2 mins 30 back.

  2. One-two-three

    Yates - his first stage win at the Giro; Pinot; chaves.

    Dumoulin eight. Froome nowhere.

  3. Dumoulin loses more time on Yates

    That would put him 38-ish seconds down now, Chaves surely up to second. What a day on Gran Sasso d'Italia, what a final two kilometres!

  4. Froome loses more than a minute

    We have wondered all week, and there is surely our answer - Froome now more than two minutes down on the race lead of his compatriot, he will need miracles from here...

  5. YATES WINS STAGE NINE!

    Brilliant from the maglia rosa, he sat in and went for it with 100m to go.

  6. Chaves lurking...

  7. Ciccione goes again!

    Pinot on his wheel.

  8. 1km to go

    Who's going to take this?

  9. Froome out the back

    26 seconds gone already!

  10. Dumoulin's there

    Yates looks good, biding his time.

  11. 1.6km to go...

    Froome's gone - Yates there, Pinot and Pozzovivo fancy this...

  12. Froome hurting

    The Briton slipping back through that thin lead group - he's dropping, he's dropping...

  13. Carapaz sniffing another

    Young Ecaudorian Richard Carapaz became the first man from his nation to win a stage on a grand tour when he took the win on Saturday - his white jersey flaring in there now. Giulio Ciccone of Bardiani explodes off the front!

  14. 3km to go

    And the catch is moments away...

  15. Here they come...

    Masnada starting to weave about the road here, his lead down to a fragile 35 seoncds, Tom Dumoulin without any Subweb lieutenants left with him, the peloton strung out across this beautiful, bleak mountain.

  16. Past the snow they come

    Masnada has 53 seconds on GB's Carthy, who has about 20 seconds from a peloton now led by Astana's massed ranks.

  17. Masnada hurting

    The shoulders tightening, the mouth hanging open. Michelton-Scott to the front of the peloton, an Astana man there, Froome with Henao now I think. Hugh Carthywith a last desperate effort to bridge across to the young Italian.

  18. Masnada putting in a shift

    7km to go, and Fausto still holding firm out there on his own. But the real climbing still lies ahead - he's got 42 seconds on Boaro, one min 54 on the big boys rattling along.

  19. Froome butressed

    The little French climber Kenny Elissonde joins Sky's thin white line. Masnada now has 25 seconds on Boara, 38 seconds further back to the four chasers, the peloton about a minute and 20 further back still.

  20. Across a grassy plateau

    Steep slopes ahead, great slabs of snow still there in the vertical crevices and folds in the rock face.
