Stage 10 of the Tour de France is just under 150 kilometres and starts in Morzine Les Portes du Soleil and ends in Megève. The riders will climb 2 Cat 4’s, a Cat 3 and finally a Cat 2 climb and compared to the days that lie ahead it is a fairly easy stage.
STAGE 9 RECAP
The break finally stuck on Stage 9 when Bob Jungels held off a determined challenge from Thibaut Pinot to grab a first ever Tour de France win. Although the General Classification contenders chose not to take each other on until right at the very end, the result of this stage was very much in the balance until the last couple of kilometres. Castroviejo finished 22 seconds back in second with Verona a further 4 seconds back in third. Pinot faded late to finish fourth.
Pogacar continues to lead Vingegaard by 39 seconds with Geraint Thomas now 1:17 back in 3rd. Pogacar remains a firm favourite at 4/10 with Vingegaard priced at 28/10 and you can get 22/1 and better the balance. Click here for Tour de France Outright Betting

STAGE 10 ROUTE AND PREDICTIONS
As mentioned in the intro we are in the mountains, but this is not the toughest stage and it is one that the breakaway riders will be eyeing up. The stage starts with a downhill and we can expect a frantic rush to try and get into the break and I expect that we could get a strong group of riders going away after the first Cat 4 climb which measures just 2.2 kilometres and rises at an average of 2.9%. If the break doesn’t get away at that point it will probably go on the Cat 3 climb peaking out at 69 kilometres just short of half way.
With a couple of big mountain stages to come on I can’t see any of the General Classification teams chasing down the break although you can never discount Pogacar and his hunger for stages. I am banking on the breakaway here and will pick a couple of riders to fly the flag.
Lennard Kamna tried hard to get into the break on Sunday and he showed on Friday that he has excellent legs. He is the favourite for the stage and a reminder that World Sports Betting offer Money Back in the form of Free Bets should he run 2nd. Simon Geschke is a 40/1 shot and he has been showing up in a number of breakaways to date. The final climb of 19.2 kilometres averages just 4.1% and this should suit a rider of Geschke’s style.
Simon Geschke 40/1
Lennard Kamna 13/2
