Tour de France 2013 preview

The 2013 Tour de France will be the 100th Tour de France. It is scheduled to start in Corsica, in the city of Porto-Vecchio. The island will host the first three stages. Corsica is the only Metropolitan department which the Tour has never passed through and the organizers wanted to combine the 100th edition of the Tour with the Tours first ever visit to Corsica. The 2013 race will be the first race to be completed only on French soil since 1988. It will feature a final set of stages which have been described as "brutal", including three Alpine stages in the last week along with a "viciously hard" time trial. These include a double ascent of lAlpe dHuez, the first time the tour will feature a double climb of this scale. There will be seven flat stages, five hilly stages, six mountain stages (with four summit finishes), two individual time trial stages and one team time trial stage covering a total of 3,360 kilometers (2,088 mi). The Tour will finish at dusk in Paris.

Winner of the 2007 and 2009 Tours, Alberto Contador, will return to the race having missed the 2012 edition through suspension. Andy Schleck, the 2010 winner, should also return having missed 2012 through injury. Bradley Wiggins, the defending champion, looks set to focus on the Giro dItalia and will likely ride the Tour de France in support of teammate, and 2012 runner-up Chris Froome. Vincenzo Nibali will also be one of the contenders, being the new captain of Astana, after getting his first Tour de France podium in 2012.

Previous Race of the Tour of France

The 2012 Tour de France was the 99`th edition of the competition. It started with a time-trial event in Belgium as a prologue and it ended in Paris on Champs-Elysees. As the prologue, two road stages took place in Belgium, and one stage of the competition ended in Switzerland. Bradley Wiggins from Team Sky won the race, 321 in front of compatriot and teammate Chris Froome. They became the first British to finish the Grande Boucle on top three in the history of the competition. The first "yellow jersey" was won by Swiss raider Fabian Cancellara who won the prologue.

TIPS & PREDICTIONS

2013 Favorites                

Rider ODDS BOOKIE TIPS
Chris Froome 2.50 Boylesports The rider that finished second in the previous race has the top chances to win this years edition. His team will surely help him improve his chances to win this race.
Alberto Contador 3.00 Bet365 He will be back after a suspension in the previous race and he wants to get his name on the winners list, winning this race. It will be hard for him after a year of pause, but he is a good rider and he has good chances.
Bradley Wiggins 15.00 Boylesports The 2012 winner is credited only with the third chance to win the race this year. He will probably try more to help his teammate Froome to win the race.
Joaquin Rodriguez 17.00 Victor Chandler The fourth place in the top 5 favorites Joaquin Rodrigues, is a young rider that will try to show the world that he has what it takes to win some stages in The Great Tour.
Nairo Quintana 21.00 Victor Chandler Last place in the top 5 favorites, Nairo Quitana has only small chances to win the race, but he could win some stages and disrupt the other raiders with better chances to win.
