Tour De France Stage 10 betting tips, predictions, odds and free bets (Annecy > Le Grand Bornand - July 17, 2018)

After the demanding cobbled stage and a rest day, the 2018 Tour de France enters the Alps for the first of three stages. Stage 10, from Annecy to Le Grand Bornand, covers five categorized climbs. This post contains our Tour De France Stage 10 betting preview, best odds, expert tips on Winner & Head to Head, exclusive promotions & no deposit free bets for all BetAndSkill readers!



The stage’s length is a little over 158 kilometres and features 35 kilometres of steep climbing. This is one of the stages where mountain climbers will have a definite advantage.

The day will start on the shores of Lake Annecy and the first climb will be the 11.1km Col de la Croix Fry, with an average gradient of 7.1%.

The race will then head to the Plateau des Glières, a climb new to the Tour. Not the longest at only 6km, it will test the legs of all averaging 11.2% with reported sections of 27%. Here, the final 2km of the climb will take place on a gravel road before descending back down to the valley. There's a twisting descent from the plateau des Glières to Thorens-Glières and then the road actually climbs from Thorens-Glières towards La Roche-Sur-Foron (5.6km at 4.5%).

Anyway, most of the action to take place on the day’s final two ascents, the Col de Romme (8.8km at 8.9%) and the Col de la Colombière (7.5km at 7.9%), both Category 1. The stage ends in Le Grand Bornand at the bottom of the Colombière

Chris Froome is still far from the best form. It could take a couple of stages more before to see the best version of the Brit, as it happened at the Giro 2018.  He has a great team to help him and he’s known to dominate in similar terrains.

Movistar’s co-leaders Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde made it through the first week relatively unscathed while their team-mate Mikel Landa is nursing cuts and bruises. The Colombian is one of the most likely candidates to win this stage, despite the long descent from the last summit to the finish line. Valverde would be happy with a sprint from a reduced group while Landa is likely to be the first rider to attack.

Dan Martin could also be on the offensive on this tough day as well as Adam Yates.

2014 Tour De France champion Vincenzo Nibali had a great first week, losing almost no time aside from the Team Time Trial. The Italian could profit both from the steep climbs and the final descent.

This could be also the perfect stage for GC riders who lost time on the cobbles of Roubaix to reignite their hopes.

Romain Bardet, who suffered three punctures and even more bike changes on Stage 9, need to gain terrain over the other GC contenderes.

Rigoberto Uran also lost 1:28 on the group of favourites last Sunday, so we expect the Colombian to try to attack on the last climb.

The likes of Jakob Fuglsang, Primoz Roglic, Tom Dumoulin, Ilnur Zakarin and Bauke Mollema have all the legs to climb with the best riders and could lose very few seconds from the winner of this stage.

Dark horses?

Warren Barguil’s time to shine has to be now. He didn’t lose much time up the Mur de Bretagne in midweek and held on to the leading group in Roubaix.

Thomas De Gendt looked far from his best form while Geraint Thomas, altough he's 2nd in GC standings and with good chances to wear the Yellow Jersey, is expected to protect his captain Chris Froome.

Bob Jungels could be eyeing yellow as he trails Greg Van Avermaet by just 50 seconds. Anyway, he's not the kind of rider who makes the pace and don't see him finishing in the top 3.

Richie Porte abandoned the race with injury after suffering a crash on stage nine cobbles. Hence, Tejay Van Garderen is the BMC leader but the American has been well below par so far.

Lilian Calmejane is the most likely name to be in the early breakaway. Other riders could be Damiano Caruso, Julian Alaphilippe, Robert Gesink, Pierre Rolland, Darwin Atapuma, Pierre Latour, Dani Navarro and Rafal Majka.

Among those riders, Rafal Majka is our favourite pick.
