Dan Martin , Richie Porte crash hard descending

 

Dan Martin and Richie Porte both crashed hard on the descent of the Mont du Chat on stage 9 of the Tour de France.

Porte is sadly out of the race and was taken off to hospital by ambulance in a neck brace.

The good news for Dan Martin was that he was able to continue. But no sooner was he back on his bike that he crashed again.

He eventually got going for a second time and got into a group that included Nairo Quintana (Movistar.

However, Martin’s group lost 1:15 to stage winner Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac).

In the breakaway with the Colombian were six men.

And most of them Martin’s rivals for a place on the podium; Christopher Froome (Team Sky), Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale), Fabio Aru (Astana) and Jakob Fuglsang (Astana).
