Stage Winner

Primoz Roglic 11/10

Tom Dumoulin 16/10

Geraint Thomas 9/2

Michal Kwiatkowski 8/1

Chris Froome 12/1

Stefan Kung 22/1

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

Verdict:

Roglic was amazingly strong in winning yesterday’s stage which has seen him elevated to favourite for this time trial. It’s a discipline he specializes in but he has all the big TT specialists for company at the top of the betting boards and GC podium places are up for grabs.

Slight preference is for Tom Dumoulin

Suggested Bets: Tom Dumoulin win at 16/10
