Tour de France 2018 Stage 14 Preview

600

Stage 14 of Tour de France takes the riders on a 188km trek from Saint Paul Trois Châteaux to a Category 2 finish at Mende on Saturday.

Race Update:

Stage 13 saw Peter Sagan win a sprint to the line and he only needs to remain upright all the way to Paris to keep hold of the green jersey.

There were no changes in GC so Thomas remains in yellow 1:39 up on team mate Froome whilst Dumoulin is third (+1:50) and Roglic (+2:46)

The King of the Mountains competition sees Alaphilippe lead the way with 84 points with Barguil next best with 70.

Movistar lead the Team Classification, 4:03 seconds up on Team Sky.

In addition to individual stage betting we have a number of outright markets available and you can view all the options here.

Stage Profile

Although there are no high mountains this looks a pretty demanding profile with the 4 categorized climbs coming in the second half of the stage and there is very little in the way of flat terrain after the first 60km or so. The final climb to Mende is only 3km in length but the average gradient is 10.2%.

Julian Alaphilippe 33/10

Alejandro Valverde 14/1

Rafal Majka 16/1

Daniel Martin 18/1

Warren Barguil 18/1

Ion Izagirre 22/1

Note, prices are correct at the time of writing but are subject to change.

Verdict:

Alaphilippe took things easy on Friday and if he wants this he will be hard to beat but he has been working hard on many fronts including the King of the Mountains competition and preference is for Valverde.

Suggested Bets: Valverde to win at 14/1
