Can Voeckler keep the Yellow Jersey?

Thomas Voeckler earns a lead in the GC of Le Tour on stage 9

Voeckler has vowed to fight to retain his overall lead.

"It was a wet and stressful day, but one more day in the yellow jersey is great," he said.

"To be honest I expect to lose it tomorrow but it doesn't mean I'm not going to fight to keep it."

His Europcar team director Jean-Rene Bernaudeau was not so defeatist.

"Thomas will never admit it but I think he can keep it unless the favourites attack as early as the first climb," he said.

"If they wait for the last climb, I don't see Thomas losing 2:30 on it."
