Stage Profile

The riders return from the rest day for a flat stage which has two Cat 4 climbs with the intermediate sprint in between at 121km. At 178 km in length it’s shorter than the flat stages we have seen before and given the top of the final climb is around 40km from the finish one would expect it to be a day for the sprinters.

Stage 10 Betting - Winner

Kittel 4/7

Greipel 9/2

Kristoff 9/1

Boasson Hagen 13/1

Groenewegen 16/1

Bouhanni 16/1

Matthews 18/1

Note, prices are an early show, approx average at the time of writing and are subject to change.

Analysis

Kittel has 3 stage wins so far, the latest of which was by a whisker from Boasson Hagen. Greipel is under pressure to maintain his record of landing a stage in his grand tour appearances; Kristoff has been pretty consistent as has Matthews and the prices for the likes of Groenewegen and Bouhanni still tempt me.

With no Demare, Cavendish and Sagan and some of the favourites short of a lead out man or two we could see other names in the frame. If you want to take on Kittel its a real roll of the dice, I’ll try again with Kristoff for loose change.

Bets: Kristoff at 9/1
