Tour de France betting: British rider looks to make history

Jun 27, 2012 |
Bradley Wiggins is the odds-on favorite to win this year’s Tour de France and if he does end up winning, he’ll go into the history books.

Wiggins is bidding to become the first British Tour winner and he looks like he’s in great shape as the first rider to ever win the Paris-Nice, the Tour of Romandie, and the Criterium du Dauphine in one season.

The 32-year-old will be the leader of Team Sky but has a number of world-class riders supporting him as well.

"Since I was 12, I always thought about winning the Tour, but never maybe thought that it would be a reality," Wiggins recently told reporters. "The team's preparation has been perfectly managed and our form this season gives us a great chance of being successful. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and I'll do everything I can to win the Tour de France."
