SprintStage 10 of Tour de France 2021 takes place on Tuesday 6th July, a 190km flat stage from Albertville to Valence and the betting suggests we will see a bunch sprint.

Outright Update

 

The riders return from a rest day after Stage 9 was won by Ben O' Connor on Sunday. It was another high mountain stage with a summit finish and O' Connor soloed to victory on the final climb, not only winning the stage but putting himself into second place in the overall standings.

 

Further back GC leader Pogacar rode away from what was remaining of the peloton and he remains in yellow with O'Connor at +2:01 and Uran +5:18. Vingegarrd is +5:32 and now Jumbo Visma leader after Roglic abandoned before the start on Sunday. Carapaz +5:33 is the best placed of the Ineos riders and former race leader Matthieu Van Der Poel has also left the tour.

 

Mark Cavendish leads the Points Classification with 168 ahead of Matthews 130 and Colbrelli 121. Quintana leads the KoM with 50 points, Michael Woods has 42 and Wout Poels 39.

 

Pogacar is now 0.07/1 in the outright betting to win the GC with Carapaz and O'Connor available at 20/1.

Stage Profile

 

The route contains just one categorized climb, a Cat 4 of 7.4km at 2.8% roughly a quarter of the way into the stage. Shortly after the intermediate sprint is intriguingly placed on an uncategorized rise in terrain and it's pretty flat thereafter.

The Verdict

 

We should get a bunch sprint but it may not be as straight forward a stage as people think. I expect the teams of Matthews and Colbrelli to try and keep the break in check until after the intermediate sprint where they will hope to distance Cavendish.

If they succeed we could get a really strong break and Cavendish’s team will have to chase hard with little help.

This may leave him a bit short for the final lead out and with a right turn 350m before the line coming from far behind will be tough.

 

Main Bet: Sagan top 3 at 7/2 – a master of positioning he should be well placed when they turn for home

Smaller Bet 1: Kung win at 80/1 – from a strong break

Smaller Bet 1: Stuyven win at 125/1 – from a strong break
