The Canadian cyclist Michael Woods was the winner this Sunday of the ninth stage in the 2023 Tour de France, and incidentally became the first cyclist of non-European origin to win the mythical Puy de Dome summit, although the Danish Jonas Vingegaard maintained the yellow shirt.

Woods made an incredible climb, when at the beginning of the climb he was 1 ′ 45 ″ behind the race leader, but managed to overtake Jorgenson in the last meters. The Slovenian Tadej Pogacar also made an attack on the climb to the mythical mountain pass, where he managed to lose eight seconds on the leader.

“Pogacar has discounted me seconds, but it is not a very important income. I think the next stages are going better for me, I’m looking forward to the Alps,” said defending champion Jonas Vingegaard and race leader.

For his part, the Colombian Egan Bernal lived a tense day in the ninth stage of the 2023 Tour de France, taking into account the very high mountain tour that took place this Sunday and the interests of Ineos with the Spanish Carlos Rodríguez.

Now Hárold Tejada (Astana) became the best Colombian in the ‘grande boucle’, finishing the first third of the total route, being ranked 23rd.

The most anticipated fraction of the weekend was in suspense, as the two title favorites were calculating when moving their chips on the road. They did not want to uncover their cards and only showed their teeth in the last mountain pass that the day had.

The cyclists will have this Monday the first day of rest in the gala round, where they will try to recover as much energy as possible for the second week, being the toughest of this Tour de France with three consecutive days of mountain stages.
