Tour De France Stage 21 Preview


Tour De France Stage 21 Preview

So the race has been decided now and what an exciting Tour De France it has been. Again I feel Cycling needs to improve its timing tracking and improve the detail of information we get during the time trial. Long time trials are not always the most interesting but Tony Martin showed as always how to get it done. Over any test this long with no steep inclines Martin is king. Tom Dumoulin who has been impressive as a time trial rider over shorter put in a solid show but was still a minute 39 down on the German. Jan Barta another rider who along with Tom I have fancied in short time trials this year proved strong and gave team mate Konig a fantastic marker for his strong showing.

Yellow jersey Nibali might have been getting less of the tv time today but as good as his word he looked to dominate and came in 4th and best of the GC men to increase an already large time gap. The impressive Konig was 5th home with Tejay 6th wondering what could have been barring his very off day.  Peraud was a rock solid 7th with Pinot 12th. Mollema was so poor he moved down to 10th with Ten Dam passing him but also moving down with a 9th.

A look back at the Stage 20 winning bets

From a betting point of view it was a very strong day for the blog. 4 Bets were advised and all won in very convincing fashion, malady opposing Mollema proving very wise.  So to wrap up Stage 20 we ended up with +7.18pts. Its been a positive results for the Tour, and remember all this advice given free of charge so others can learn the sport and win some money.

We all know what Tour De France Stage 21 is it is the sprint known around the world. Winning on the Champs Elysees might be seen as a sprint by some but for most sprinters it is considered a classic and one everyone wants in the palmares. Last year Kittel broke the Cavendish streak by winning at dusk and again we get the later finish this year with a womans race to keep the crowd entertained early in the day. Again I like the idea of turned around the Arc de Triomph rather than turning before it. With 9 laps in the city centre the race is a huge day for the city and a great day out.

For me straight away with Cavendish not making it to Paris last years champion takes the eye Marcel Kittel. At odds on however I will neither be a backer or layer of the fastest man in sprinting this year. I fully expect Peter Sagan to go without a stage win and miss out here with the fire power he will be up against. Demare might be value if he is feeling well again. Value however is in Renshaw who has delivered Cavendish to his wins while at HTC here before and once had his own 2nd he might surprise at a big price.
