Tour De France Stage 14 betting tips, predictions, odds and free bets (Saint-Paul-Trois Châteaux > Mende - July 21, 2018)

Tour De France Stage 14, a 188km route from Saint-Paul-Trois Châteaux to Mende, should make for an exciting end to the Tour de France’s second week. The punchy finale is one of the most spectacular on the route. Read here our Tour De France Stage 14 betting preview, best odds, expert tips on Winner & Head to Head, bookie bonuses & no deposit free bets for all our readers!



The stage begins in Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and after four steep climbs, the riders finish at the Mende airport. In our opinion, this stage is tailor made for puncheurs but we could see gaps between the GC contenders too.

The first uphill stretches appear at kilometre 10, but it's only a warm up ascent. Next up the Côte du Grand Châtaignier, a relatively short distance of 1km but is ridden at a considerable average gradient of 7.4%.

The second most serious climb of the 2nd category Col de la Croix de Berthel (9.1km at 5.3%) while the next climb is at Col du Pont sans Eau which is a 3.3km climb at a 6.3% average gradient.

The stage has a very hard-hitting finale. At 188 kilometres, the riders cross the hilly Drôme department to conclude with the Cote de la Croix Neuve, a 3 kilometres climb at 10.2% while its steepest ramps are 18%. An 1 kilometre drop and 500 metres on the flat lead to the finish on the airport runway in Mende.

The headwind most of the day should keep everyone cautious and calm till the finale, so riders as Peter Sagan and Greg Van Avermaet are the favourites to win the stage.

Fast descending puncheurs as Alejandro Valverde and Julian Alaphilippe are men to watch too. Daniel Martin is another rider who is capable of winning as he loves this kind of explosive climbs.

Chris Froome has not been impressive so far while Romain Bardet was the only man to escape the Sky train for any length of time on the Alpe d'Huez, and his short attacking bursts could be decisive here.

Tom Dumoulin and Geraint Thomas are not normally as punchy on sharper climbs but they are the in-form riders at the moment and could not be ruled out. Primoz Roglic is the dark horse among the GC contenderes.

Mikel Landa is struggling with injuries while Nairo Quintana has been very disappointing so far. We don't expect the Colombian to improve his form.

There’s another potential scenario, though. A winning breakaway with attackers from far out. If they are in a good position after the crest of the Cote de la Croix Neuve, one of the attackers may get the win.

Dani Martinez is a good bet on the Croix Neuve, and Simon Gerrans is ideally suited for the finish as well.

Furthermore, we’d be unsurprised to see Thomas De Gendt back in the action as well as Greg Van Avermaet, but the final climb should be too hard for the former Yellow Jersey depending on who else is in the break.

Other possible candidates for an eventual breakaway are Steven Kruijswijk, Philippe Gilbert, Adam Yates, Domenico Pozzovivo, Ilnur Zakarin, Rafal Majka, Marc Soler and Mikel Nieve.
