The Tour de France 2017 heads into the mountains properly for the first time on stage eight, with a big day of climbing to Station des Rousses.

It’s not a proper summit finish here, with 12km flat to the finish line from the top of the final category one climb.

That could favour a breakaway over the 187.5km, but the time gaps on GC prior to the stage remained small enough that race leader Chris Froome and his Team Sky squad would need to be very careful who they let get up the road.

Or could it be a day for the GC men? We’re still not even halfway through this Tour and it would seem an ambitious move for a GC rider to have a go at this early stage, particularly with another difficult day in the Jura mountains on Sunday’s stage nine.

Catch-up with the best bits of the stage or read up on everything that happened on the eight day of racing in our stage eight report.

The 2017 Tour de France starts in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Saturday July 1 and finishes three weeks later in Paris on Sunday, July 23.
