Stage 19 of Tour de France 2021 takes place on Friday 16th July, a profile which will interest Mark Cavendish as well as an opportunity for a number of teams who have yet to claim a stage win

Outright Update


Stage 18 came down to a GC battle and it was won by Tadej Pogacar ahead of rivals Vingegarrd and Carapaz, the same top 3 as we saw on the previous stage.


As far the GC standings are concerned Pogacar remains in yellow with Vingegarrd +5:45, Carapaz +5:51. Rigoberto Uran totally cracked so Ben O Conner is fourth +8:18


Mark Cavendish leads the Points Classification with 298 ahead of Matthews on 260 and Colbrelli on 208


The KoM competition is now led by Pogacar with 107 points ahead of Wout Poels 88 and with a flat stage, an ITT and a sprint in Paris to come and barring accidents Pogacar is set to land 3 jerseys, yellow, polka dot and also white for best young rider.

Stage Profile


The stage is 207km long and the only categorized climb, a Cat 4, comes early which should help a breakaway get established. The intermediate sprint comes at 54km, there are some lumps in the final 30km or so leading to the finish at Libourne

Mark Cavendish 16/10

If it comes to a bunch sprint then Cavendish, who is on the verge of breaking the record for the most TdF stage wins, will be hard to beat. However the breakaway may not be without hope and the possibility of a long range solo also exists. At the prices available a speculative play on Jasper Stuyven might pay dividends.


Dylan Van Baarle is another profile suited rider and he could pop up at huge odds if given the license to go for this stagae by his team.


Don't forget the money back special promotion for a second place finish and also the option to bet in play.


Bets: Jasper Stuyven at 25/1

Dylan Van Baarle at 150/1
