Tour de France Betting
The 2014 Tour de France will be the 101th Tour de France. It is scheduled to start in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, on 5 July 2014, and will also feature a stage finish in London, before returning to France.
The tour will be the first to be completed only on French soil since 1988. It will feature a final set of stages which have been described as "brutal", including three Alpine stages in the last week along with a "viciously hard" time trial. These include a double ascent of l'Alpe d'Huez, the first time the tour will feature a double climb of this scale.
Betting on the 2014 Tour de France at IslandCasino is a great way to increase your enjoyment of the most famous event on the international cycling calendar. Hard though it is to believe, 'Le Tour' as its fans like to call it, started out as a marketing exercise for a French newspaper.
IslandCasino posts prices on the three most significant jerseys (yellow, green and polka dot) before the race begins and revises them at regular intervals as the peloton makes it way to the finishing line in Paris. These options fall under futures betting and are extremely popular. Bet on the green jersey (points classification - Maillot Vert) and polka dot jersey (King of the Mountains - Maillot Blanc à Pois Rouges) classifications.
