Closest Tour De France In Years Sees Froome As Favourite (Just)

 

Despite Froome being favourite to win the Tour, it is not Team Sky that are favourites to win the Team Classification. They are 9/4 second favourites behind Movistar at 11/8.

“It looks as though this Tour more than ever before, will be a close one and it could come down to who remains the fittest and who manages to stay upright in order to win this year’s race,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
