Graham and Brad reflect on a memorable Stage 9 which saw Marc Hirschi mount a solo breakaway for 90km and then contest the final sprint, only to be beaten in heartbreaking fashion by about a metre by Tadej Pogacar and Primoz Roglic.
There's words of praise for his heroic effort, but are we looking at a potential Slovenian one-two in Paris with Pogacar and Roglic looking in fine form?
Roglic is now looking supreme in yellow for Jumbo-Visma after taking the race lead from Adam Yates, but Egan Bernal's fourth place on Stage 9 showed he is still in with a strong shout on GC for Ineos.
There's also debate over what the future holds for Fabio Aru following his unexpected abandon today.
Brad also pays tribute to Nico Portal on the day the Tour visited Pau.
