TDF 2010 Stage 9 Revisited: Bonus Shots from Le Grand Bornand

As a follow-up to yesterday's post on Stage 9 through the Haute Savoie, Brett "The Wine Maestro" Jones sent along some more photos that he snapped as the race passed through Le Grand Bornand Le Chinaillon.

Just a couple of the crazy vehicles that form the immense publicity caravan that leads the way around the course of Le Tour every day.

Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) and Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Farnese Vini) in hot pursuit of the early breakaway.

The unmistakable riding style of Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana), on his own in no man's land between the peloton and the breakaway.

Robbie Hunter (Garmin-Transitions), the only rider from South Africa in this year's Tour, braking hard in preparation for a downhill hairpin turn.

One of the many splinter groups formed within the main peloton, on a very tough stage of this year's Tour.
