Tour De France Stage 17 predictions, betting tips, odds and free bets (July 19, 2017)

Tour De France Stage 17, the first of two hard days in the Alps, is a 183km route from La Mure to Serre Chevalier offering four categorized climbs, including the highest summit of the race, the Col du Galibier. Check out below our Tour De France Stage 17 betting preview, highest odds, predictions on Winner & Head to Head, betting promotions & no deposit free bets on today's cycling!

There are four categorised climbs on today's menu, two of which are HC, including the high point of the Tour on the Galibier at 2642m. Prior to that, there is the Col d'Ornon (5.1km at 6.7%), Col de la Croix de Fer (24km at 5.2%) and the Col du Télégraphe (11.9km at 7.1%).

  • Km 30.0 - Col d'Ornon 5.1 kilometre-long climb at 6.7% - category 2
  • Km 78.5 - Col de la Croix de Fer (2 067 m) 24 kilometre-long climb at 5.2% - category H
  • Km 132.5 - Col du Télégraphe (1 566 m) 11.9 kilometre-long climb at 7.1% - category 1
  • Km 155.0 - Col du Galibier (2 642 m) Souvenir Henri Desgrange 17.7 kilometre-long climb at 6.9% - category H

With only a short descent between the top of the Télégraphe and the base of the Galibier, it’s here that Romain Bardet’s AG2R La Mondiale teammates might try to put Team Sky under pressure in an attempt to isolate Chris Froome.

Combined, the Télégraphe and Galibier present the riders with almost 30 kilometers of climbing. Once the Galibier is capped, it's 28km downhill to the finish, with the top sections consisting of hairpins, before a long drop to finish.

Team Sky is expected to completely control the race, stopping early attacks from GC contenders given that Chris Froome is not enjoying his best form. As a consequence, Mikel Landa is likely to be utilised as guard dog, rather than used as attacker to let other teams chase him. Whether Froome wins the stage or not will likely depend on how conservative he intends to be: as he has said, with the time trial in Marseille coming up, he has no reason to be aggressive

Fabio Aru and Rigoberto Uran are among the best climbers in the peloton, but we don't expect them to attack before the Galibier as they will find themselves with no team mates with too many kilometers to go.

Dan Martin needs to regain time too after the Irishman lost almost 50 seconds because of crosswinds on Stage 16. He looked the most explosive climber last week and only the "Richie Porte's crash" prevented him to be in the top 3 of the General Classification.

We expect Alberto Contador to make fireworks on the Croix De Fer or Telegraphe, as the Spaniard still wants a stage. He could be followed by Simon Yates and Damiano Caruso, who are looking to improve and defend their top 10 position, rather than try to win a stage. Furthermore, after a couple of disappointing days, it will be no surprise to see Nairo Quintana returning to a more prominent role within the leading group.

Warren Barguil is defending a lead in the Tour’s King of the Mountains competition and we expect him to be in the early breakaway on Wednesday. Winning the first two climbs would give Barguil another 25 points toward the polka dot jersey competition, essentially wrapping-up the competition for the Frenchman.

The Tour has not worked out well for another French rider as Thibaut Pinot, but it's worth remembering that he won on Alpe d'Huez in 2015 and can rescue his race here.

Other dark horses?

Primoz Roglic, Thomas De Gendt, Bauke Mollema and Pierre Rolland are the most fancied riders in case of winning breakaway.
We don't rule out also the likes of Tiesj Benoot, Liliane Calmejan, Jan Bakelants and Steve Cummings while we expect other riders such as Carlos Betancur, Alexis Vuillermoz, Piette Latour, Mathias Frank, Mikel Nieve and Michal Kwiatkowski helping their respective captain.
Jarlinson Pantano crashed on Tuesday's stage and he could not be 100% fit.
