Last of the sprints for now...let battle commence
Bradley Wiggins crashed out of the Tour de France at the 7th stage and William Hill make him 1/20 to never win Le Tour. He is 8/1 to ride into Paris with the Yellow Jersey at some point during his career.
Mark Cavendish won his second stage at the place where he won his first ever and William Hill are offering 9/1 that he wins another four or more and he is 1/3 to win at least one more stage.
"Cav has really stormed into form and his finish today indicated that he could easily get at least another one or two wins under his belt," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Alberto Contador is the favourite for the Yellow Jersey at Even money ahead of 13/8 Andy Schleck and heading into the mountains is where the race really starts.
