Tour De France 2019 Preview
It’s almost time for the 106th edition of the Tour De France! This year, the most important cycling event of the year is set to become a historical one, for many reasons. Let’s take a look to the past, present and possible future to see if there’s some money to make with clever betting options!
The Tour De France is traditionally the absolute high note of the cycling season, but this year, it’s promising to become a very special edition. For starters, the Tour celebrates the most successful cyclist ever, Eddy Merckx, with a Grand Départ in Brussels for a full stage on Belgian soil. This 2019 edition is also the 100th edition to feature the emblematic yellow jersey for general classification leaders. In a more sportive light, this Tour is expected to be one of the most open in years, as two of the absolute favourites – Chris Froome and Tom Dumoulin – are out with injuries. Who among their rivals will rise to the occasion and race himself into the history books?
The 2019 Tour De France
The 106th edition of the biggest event in competitive cycling takes place from July 6th till July 28th. It will consist of 21 stages with the usual mix of relatively long and flat stages, intermediately hilly stages, hellish mountain stages, and time trials, for a total of a whopping 3,460 km. 22 teams will have players competing in this edition: all 18 UCI WorldTeams which are automatically invited, and 4 UCI Professional Continental teams, who received special invitations to participate. The organisers went out of their way to make this year’s Tour a real challenge in an effort to keep the sport competitive. With important players not participating for various reasons, it’s starting to look like we are indeed in for a historical edition!
Who to look out for?
Four-time Tour winner Chris Froome (Team Ineos) is out after a shocking crash during a trial run in the Critérium du Dauphiné, which left him with several fractures and a long and harrowing road to recovery. Equally absent is Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb), who had to give up in the Giro d’Italia with a nasty knee injury. That puts the door wide open for a whole slew of competitors, from their own teams as well as from rival teams. Even without team token Froome, Team Ineos (formerly Team Sky) still holds the best papers, with both Egan Bernal (@2.90) and Geraint Thomas (@3.75) considered fairly likely to finish in yellow. Hoping to break Team Ineos’s hegemony, we have the likes of Astana’s Jakob Fuglsang (@6.40), Mitchelton–Scott’s Adam Yates (@12.50) and Movistar Team’s Nairo Quintana (@17.00).
Though a general qualification prize seems out of reach with so much quality competition, several veterans and rookies are already eyeing several stages. Friends and foes alike are eagerly anticipating what first-time participant Wout Van Aert (Team Jumbo–Visma) can pull off. The same goes for points qualification specialist Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), who can win his record seventh green jersey in this year’s edition (@1.45). At @2.55 versus @7.40, a puncher like Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck–Quick-Step) will likely duke it out with a more traditional climber like Warren Barguil for the mountains classification. Here, too, allrounders like Egan Bernal (@18.00) and Nairo Quintana (@32.00) can put up a decent fight, just like they can do in the time trials too. Excitement is guaranteed with such an open Tour De France filled with diverse talents, so be sure to check in daily to bet on the stage winner!
Due to the nature of the event, it's possible that bets on the Tour De France are not always available. If you find this to be the case, we advise you to try again later.
