Chris Froome has maintained the yellow jersey in recent stages as his main rivals have not picked up any ground. In fact, one of his main competitors, defending champion Vincenzo Nibali has lost ground. “My teammates rode fantastically,” said Froome after Stage 11. “They really kept a hold and kept a control on a race that could have blown out of control very easily.” Froome realizes that the race is not over saying, “This race isn’t over. I can expect every day that someone’s going to try to take the race on and make it difficult and try to get some time back.”
Tour de France Betting
The 2015 Tour de France is the 102nd edition of the great race. It started on July 4th in Utrecht, the Netherlands and will conclude on July 26th in Champs-Elysees in Paris, France. A total of 22 teams were entered in the 2012 Tour de France with the maximum number of riders in the field at 198. A total of 32 countries are represented in the race with France leading the way with 41. Before the race began there were four main contenders to win the Tour de France. They were defending champion Vincenzo Nibali, 2013 winner Chris Froome, Alberto Contador and Nairo Quintana. It is looking like Froome will win the 2015 Tour de France but you can do more than just pick the ultimate race winner when you bet on this race. And also keep in mind that the odds can change based on the results of each stage. You can bet on individual stages and you can also still bet on King of the Mountains, Points Classification and Young Rider Classification winners.
You can bet on who you think will win each individual stage of the Tour de France. If you have already made your wager on a rider to win the entire race you may want to have additional action on the individual stages. And unless you bet on Froome you will be looking for more action. There is plenty of action at the online sportsbook as individual stages take place on an almost daily basis for most of the month of July. The action picks up in the mountains where anything can happen. The week of July 22nd through July 25th will see four pivotal mountain stages.
