Le Tour de France reverts from 200 kilometres of flat, won by Lithuanian sharp-shooter Ramunas Navardauskas, back to 50k time-trial before Vincenzo Nibali’s coronation drift into the Champs Elysees on Sunday.
The Tour winner elect is the 14/1 second-favourite for Stage 20, behind 1/4 jolly and Stage 9 winning noted-sprinter German Tony Martin, but surely we can do better than that…
Jean-Christophe Peraud @ 50/1
Rarely will the peloton have seen a more determined figure, as Peraud will be aiming to topple second-placed countryman Thibaut Pinot and become the first Frenchman on the podium since Richard Virenque in 1997.
Michael Rogers @ 80/1
The Stage 16 winner is the shortest-priced of the highly-successful Tinkoff-Saxo team, who have won three of the last six stages, and the Aussie rider is sure to be prominent in Dordogne.
Alejandro Valverde @150/1
The only member of the peloton who can realistically stop a French 2-3, with Pinot and Peraud ahead and Romain Bardet just behind in fifth.
The Spaniard will be as desperate for the finish as any rider out there.
