Anyone tried trading this market before? Currently £300k matched & with 3 weeks to go the fav is 2.5ish atm.

A lot can happen in that time & not all of it in the cyclists control: illness, injury, crashes... Think I'll try a small lay on fav & see what happens...

2017 might be a better proposition though !

I feel exactly the same way I want him to win but I don't want it to be a walk over. I don't think he has won any races so far this year, and I read there were rumours circulating about him having a back injury. Maybe the TT today might give some indication as to his current form.

He certainly does not appear in the same form as recent years which seemed to be reinforced by his performance criterium du dauphine, but its hard to tell sometimes with all the cloak and dagger stuff that goes on.

As you say we should get a truer idea off his TT today.

Usually the forum takes the top right spot, not today :)

Interesting comment made during the race: 10ish stages will be sprint finishes & a break between the mountain stages so should make it a lot harder for Froome to dominate (or any GC contender)...

Couldn't really have got off to a better start for sky though!

Volume matched over day 1 was around £40k...

Just noticed. the bikes on show today were very vintage 2017, not quite the 2107 2kg standard :D

I loved the Ti Raleigh team colours from the 1970-80's rode by many dutch professionals. Always wanted one of them when i was a kid.
Probably worth a bit today if you've got one in orginal condition with Campagnolo Super Record groupset.
