As the race entered the Pyrenees on stage ten, favourite Chris Froome dealt a telling blow, racing up the first mountain to build himself a sizable lead. Nairo Quintana was the only general classification contender that attempted to follow, but even the Colombian is over three minutes off the Team Sky rider at the head of the race.
Bet on: Tour de France
Seven-time Grand Tour winner Alberto Contador appears to be feeling the affects of his Giro d’Italia win, while defending champion Vincenzo Nibali has almost fallen out of contention altogether, showing little form in the mountains. Halfway through the Tour, and it appears nothing short of disaster can stop Froome from wearing yellow in Paris.
Predicted Winner: Chris Froome
