British cyclists have made their mark in the Tour de France 2016, as they have bagged victories in five of the first nine stages. It was a much-needed rest day for the peloton on Monday, but they will once again get on their bikes on Tuesday when the tour enters Stage 10.

Defending champion Chris Froome retained the yellow jersey just ahead of the rest day and the Briton will be expected to hold it for a while now as Le Tour passes through medium-mountainous to flat stages. Stage 10 sees the riders travel 197 km from the Escaldes-Engordany in Andorra to Revel, in south-western France.

Froome also needs to take a decision on whether to relax a bit for the next two stages or three before speeding up his challenge once again for the yellow jersey, with Paris still a long way to go. Mark Cavendish too goes into stage 10, having retained the green jersey.

"I keep the green jersey for the first rest day, I can be happy with that. I just want to enjoy my time with my family during the rest day," said Cavendish to the official website of Tour de France. "There are some opportunities left for sprinters but the stage that appeals to me is the last one in Paris."

Stage 10 will be the perfect moment for Peter Sagan to bag a second stage win in this year's Tour de France. The peloton have to begin climbing right from the start before ascending to the 2403 metre Port d'Envalira -- one of the highest summits in the Tour de France 2016.

The rest of the stage is expected to be a comfortable one as it's relatively flat, until the finish line in Revel.
