A second successive win: Orica-GreenEdge's fortune
One day after Simon Gerrans beat Peter Sagan to give his team its first stage victory in the Tour de France, the 33-year-old from Australia joined eight others - Michael Albasini, Simon Clarke, Matt Goss, Daryl Impey, Brett Lancaster, Cameron Meyer, Stuart O'Grady and Svein Tuft - to win a second successive stage. One of this team, Stuart O'Grady, was amongst the quintet of Australians to have worn the coveted 'maillot jaune' before but now there are six Aussies with those bragging rights.
Gerrans began the 25km team time trial ranked third overall, one second behind Jan Bakelants (RTL) but he ended it with same cumulative time as two team-mates - Impey and Albasini... a trio from one team who stood on the podium as winners of the fourth stage of the 100th Tour de France.
Cycling enthusiasts from all over the world are going to be gathered together all across France for the always exciting Tour de France this summer. The 2013 edition of the race is going to be even more intriguing from an international standpoint, knowing that this is going to be the 100th time that this race has been run. Join us here at BookMaker Sportsbook, as we dive right into the ins and outs of Stage 4, as we have the best Tour de France betting coverage that you'll find on the internet!
2013 Tour De France betting action is set to take the world by storm this summer! On Tuesday, July 2nd, the best cyclists in the world will get together for Stage 4 of the Tour de France, which will take run from Nice through the opposite end of the city. Coverage for this and all of the stages can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States.
All of the riders are going to be shipped from Corsica over to the mainland of France overnight between Stage 3 and Stage 4, and as a result, the run on Day 4 is going to be just a team time trial, one of which will be expected to be completed awfully quickly. There will only be teams to bet on when you make your Tour de France betting picks, and the reason for that is because only the finishing time of your last rider is how all of your riders get scored regardless of how far in front the first rider finishes ahead of the last rider. Often times, we just see the team full of riders drafting together in these time trials, and this should be no exception in Nice.
The southeast corner of France is where Stage 4 will take place. This run is only expected to take not even an hour, as there are only 25 kilometers to cover. There is literally not a single hill to climb, nor is there a mountain that the riders are going to come across. The land is virtually perfectly flat for this short run, and it is going to be a welcome change after spending three days in the hilly ranges of Corsica. There are also significantly tougher challenges ahead, and there are going to be some riders that inevitably take this time trial easily. As a result, there could be some surprising results on the Tour de France betting lines.
However, the teams that are going to be focused on are Team Sky and Team Quick Step. The Quick Step team is a Belgian-based team, led be Mark Cavendish, who is a British rider who is often overshadowed by Bradley Wiggins, who was last year's winner of this race. However, with Wiggins now out of the fold thanks to injury, there is no doubt that Cavendish and his mates could be ones to watch in Stage 4.
Team Sky, a British based team, could also be ones to watch out for on the Tour de France betting odds. Wiggins was the man that was heading up this team last year, but now, it will be Chris Froome who takes center stage as the lead rider for the club.
