Any word on if he’ll be domestique for Richie at the Tour?

Easy as you please.

I don’t think he’s quite up to Nibali’s standard, but he’s handy on the descent.

Holy hell, you don’t just drop Vincenzo Nibali.

G’wan Chaves!

There he is, our boy.
Valverde is in all sorts!

He says, as soon as Nibali launches a vicious attack to leave Scarponi in his wake.

Michele Scarponi – a former Giro winner is a decent domestique to have!

Reckon they’re doomed Brendon, or can one of them hold it?

Yeah, seeing footage of gorgeous Italian women is the worst. 🙂

Amador! What a legend. Would be happy to see him in pink for another day.

I’m backing Our Esteban to make the move too. He needs some serious time.
Reckon Suitsou and Atapuma can keep the gap though?

I thought he meant Astana.

How’s the snow! Bloody hell, you could only imagine what it does to the lungs, sucking in that icy air.

That’s a shame, he’s been class these two weeks, attacking at every chance.
Earned his day in the jersey, and a bit of history.

Broke their own man too, Fuglsang can’t hold on.

And that’ll about do us for another night. Be sure to join us on The Roar tomorrow for Stage 10 of this fascinating Giro d’Italia, where just about anyone of about ten riders could very well win the overall!

Roglic takes the stage overall, having ridden earlier in the day when the roads were dry, and Brambilla keeps the pink jersey by one second over his teammate Jungels!

Nope, Brambilla keeps the jersey by one second!

Giro d'Italia 2016: Stage 9 live race updates, blog

Gianluca Brambilla has put in a monster effort, well and truly befitting the Maglia Rosa.
He’ll be sad to lose the pink jersey, but the pain will be eased by the fact he’s lost it to teammate Jungels!

Zakarin crosses at 53rd. Could well go from second to out of the top ten tonight.
