The Tour de France is arguably the most physically demanding of all athletic sports. The distance and time the rider’s endure is the equivalent to running a marathon almost every day of the week for almost three weeks and the vertical distance covered over the Alps and Pyrenees is the same as climbing three Mount Everests!

In betting on the race, you are not restricted to just picking out the overall winner of the event, you can also bet on who will win each stage of the race, green jersey winner, polka-dot jersey winner, prologue winner and whether a rider will achieve a top three or top six finish. This year as a new change, Stage 18 will be climbed twice, Alpe de'Huez. It will also include an area that was not part of the tour ever before, this is the Metropolitan department of Corsica. the city of Porto-Vecchio is the very first place where the competition will start for the 100th edition of this cyling event.
