Beginning of the France Tour: Armstrong and Contador remain favourites

The launching since Saturday the 4th of July of the France Tour marks too the beginning of a long sporting bets event to be followed throughout this month of July. During the 21 stages which will be held one after the other before the arrival at the Champs Elysée, different runners and teams participating in this 96th edition of the Tour won’t fail to give a formidable spectacle. Among the 3,459.5 km to be covered, online sporting bets’ enthusiasts will have to designate among sites of sporting bet like Bet 770 the winners of every stage, the winner of the general, the yellow jersey… To mark its beginning, the Tour started so with a race against-the-watch of 15km in Monaco. If odds go smoothly about the identity of the probable winner of this first stage, cycling enthusiasts and sports commentators already designate the American Lance Armstrong, seven times winner of the France Tour and the Spanish Alberto Contador as favourites for the title.

However, the other teams which will face Astana, the team of these two greatest cyclists won’t let themselves defeated easily. Armstrong who was absent for 3 years at these competitions, will find it difficult to improve, moreover, Contador, winner of the Giro and the Vuelta, missing the “Grande Boucle” during the 2008 edition is also someone beatable. Runners like Denis Menchov, Cadel Evans, Levi Leipheimer, and Carlos Sastre are to be watched over closely during this race. Moreover, facing the competition of sporting bets sites, PMU, the green jersey partner renewed its sponsoring contract of the Tour in order to be visible. 15 millions of French are expected to follow this event.
