TOUR DE FRANCE STAGE 11 BETTING PREVIEW The 203.5 kilometre journey from Eymet to Pau should therefore provide another opportunity for the sprinters to take the glory. Their teams will likely be motivated to bring the breakaway back to snatch a last chance of glory before Stage 21.The intermediate sprint is with just under 80 kilometres of the stage left in the town of Aire-sur-i-Adour. The only other obstacle on the days route is the category four climb of the Cote A’Aire-sur-I’Adour, which starts immediately after the intermediate sprint point. The climb is simple, at only 4.2 per cent at 1.2 kilometres long.
Marcel Kittel confirmed he is the best sprinter in the race on what may be the form of his life. He has managed to win all but one of the sprint stages. His victory in Stage 10 means that the German has already won four sprints and bookmakers expect Kittel to record the fifth in Pau.
John Degenkolb of Trek-Segafredo was second and Dylan Groenewegen of LottoNL-Jumbo third on Tuesday's sprint, while Andre Greipel had a fabulous position coming off the final corner in stage 10 but had nothing in his legs. These three riders are the favourites to complete the podium alongside Kittel.
Dan McLay finished 7th on stage 10 and looks to be getting himself in the mix now in the bunch sprints. His form is improving as the race progresses, but he clearly lacks of speed in the final meters.
Alexander Kristoff secured another 5th place finish on stage 10. He also had a perfect position inside the final 500 metres but did not looked as fast as required.
Cofidis rider Nacer Bouhanni, who was fine becase he appeared to hit a Quick-Step Floors rider during stage 10 of the Tour de France, is yet to show his speed in this Tour thus far. Bouhanni’s best result so far this Tour has been fourth place on stage four; while he finished sixth on stage 10.
Rudiger Selig, who is the Bora-Hansgrohe no.1 sprinter after Peter Sagan's disqualification, recorded an impressive 4th place on Stage 10 and could be the very surprise here. Another dark horse could be Edwald Boasson Hagen, who finished runner up to Kittel last week by the narrowest margin ever.
Sonni Colbrelli, Adrien Petit and Michael Matthews have very feew chances to finish in the top 5.
In case of breakaway, the likes of Thomas De Gendt, Steve Cummings, Alessandro De Marchi, Stefan Kung and Jan Bakelants are the most fancied riders.
