MULHOUSE, France (AP) - German rider Tony Martin broke ahead early and comfortably held on to win the ninth stage of the Tour de France on Sunday, while Frenchman Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey from overnight leader Vincenzo Nibali of Italy.

The 29-year-old German, a three-time world time trial champion broke away early on with specialist climber Alessandro De Marchi of Italy.

Gallopin, of the Lotto Belisol team, finished several minutes after his German compatriot but did well enough to erase his deficit of more than three minutes to Nibali.
