2017 Tour De France Betting Preview

Tour De France

Tour de France is an annual multiple stage bicycle race, which is primarily held in France, while at times passes through the nearby countries. The race was first held in 1903, which is currently run by the Amaury Sport Organisation. The race has been held annually since its first edition in 1903 only except when it was stopped for the two world wars. With time the tour gained prominence and popularity and the race was lengthened and its reach began to extend around the globe. Its popularity grew as riders from all over the world began to participate in the race each year. This is a UCI World Tour event and the teams that compete in the bicycle race are mostly UCI world teams, with the exception of teams that the organisation invites.

Traditionally the race is held primarily in the month of July. The modern editions of the Tour de France consists of 21 day long segments over a 23 day period and cover around 3,500 kilometres. The race alternates between clockwise and counterclockwise circuits of France. The number of teams usually varies between 20 and 22 with nine riders in each. The rider with the lowest aggregate time is the leader of the race. Three time winner chris Froome is currently a narrow favorite in betting, but there has been plenty of support for Porte and he is on the second line of betting at a quote of $2.63. However, the likes of Cadel Evans have shown that you don’t need the strongest team to win the Tour de France and Porte may never have a better opportunity to wear the Yellow Jersey into Paris.

The King of the Mountains is always the most competitive classification at the Tour de France and that should be the case again in 2017. Thibaut Pinot ($4.33) is currently a clear favourite from Rafal Majka ($7) and there is then a big drop back to the likes of Pierre Rolland ($11) and Thomas De Gendt ($13).
