In the overall, Nibali leads teammate Fuglsang by 1:44 and Richie Porte (Sky) by 1:58. Stage 9 will probably not change this state of affairs. The hilly, 170-km ride from Gerardmer to Mulhouse will feature six categorized climbs, including a Category 1, but the summit of the last of these ascents will be 33 km from the finish.
