Stage 13 of Tour de France 2017 takes place on Friday 14th July, it’s a very short route but there are three Cat 1 climbs between Saint-Girons and the finish town of Foix
Thursday was a long day in the mountains and it saw Fabio Aru take over in yellow from Froome. Bardet was the stage winner in a GC battle ahead of Aru and Froome battled to keep in touch which will have Team Sky thinking hard about how they play it from here.
Barguil 70 pts
De Gendt 32
This stage is less than half the length of the previous day but there are still three Cat 1’s, the last of which tops out at 74 km and thereafter we have a long descent to Foix.
Km 31.0 - Col de Latrape 5.6 kilometre-long climb at 7.3%
Km 46.5 - Col d'Agnes 10 kilometre-long climb at 8.2%
Km 74.0 - Mur de Péguère 9.3 kilometre-long climb at 7.9%
Stage 13 Betting - Winner
Dan Martin 9/1
Note, prices are an early show, approx average at the time of writing and are subject to change.
The result on Thursday breathes new fire into the GC battle and should increase belief in the teams of Aru and Bardet and perhaps Uran as well that Froome can be beaten.
The short profile in terms of distance sways me to a GC battle with Uran getting my vote.
Bets: Uran to win, 12/1
