Cycling Betting

Cycling betting generally centers around the Tour de France, simply the most popular cycling event on the planet.

The Tour de France is an annual bicycle race that covers approximately 3,600 kilometers (around 2,200 mi) throughout France and bordering countries.

The race lasts three weeks and attracts cyclists from around the world, the most popular of whom includes seven-time champion Lance Armstrong, and five-time champions Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain.

The Tour de France is broken into stages. Individual times to finish each stage are totaled to determine the overall winner at the end of the race. The rider with the lowest aggregate time at the end of each day wears a yellow jersey.

The Tour de France is the best known and most prestigious of cycling's three "Grand Tours". The others are the Giro d'Italia (Italy) held every May and the Vuelta a EspaƱa (Spain) held every August-September.
