I hope the riders used their rest day well, before three consecutive days in the Alps starting with Stage 10 on Wednesday. Attacks are sure to come, especially from teams like Euskatel, which have climbers galore (although Euskatel lost more than half their team in the first week of racing), but haven't shown much in the Tour so far. And Evans will definitely look to test Wiggins' legs on the Hors Categorie climb up the Grand Colombier. I wouldn't expect Wiggins to give an inch, however. Maybe like Scarponi, who is languishing outside the top 25 in the GC will be able to sneak away for a solo victory.
