Sky’s Chris Froome, yellow jersey, takes a one minute 25 seconds lead into tomorrow’s Tour de France 10th stage from Saint-Gildas-des-Bois to Saint-Malo after a strong Pyrenean weekend.

Froome won Saturday’s eighth stage from Castres to Ax 3 Domaines to seize the lead and fought off several challenges yesterday on the 168.5km from Saint-Girons to Bagnères-de-Bigorre.
