Tour de France Betting
The 2015 Tour de France will be the 102nd Tour de France. It is scheduled to start in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, on July 4th 2015, 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 2015 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.
