Ullrich may be hurting from Stage 9 crash
Jan Ullrich's crash during today's stage may have been more serious than his injuries showed. It looked like he had scrapes on one leg, but cyclingpost.com reports that he hurt "his head, his left shoulder, and his back," and broke his helmet.
He'll try to recover on Monday's rest day before the tough stage Tuesday, with two 1st Category climbs, including the finishing climb to Courcheval.
