Tour de France 2017 Betting: Stage 4 PreviewPublished July 4, 2017 by Sol FH
Geraint Thomas overall leader, but Peter Sagan on his heels after winning the third stage. The race continues today from 12:20 GMT.
Three stages are behind us at this years Tour de France and the action continues to heat up as the best riders in the world look towards the finish line at the end of stage 4 today. Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel begins at midday today and it is a 207.5 km leg that should give the advantage to the sprinters among the field. It was the World Champion, Peter Sagan who got the win after a hard-fought uphill sprint, but Britian's Geraint Thomas retained the yellow jersey going into the 4th stage.
In the final 300m, Sagan's foot slipped from out of his pedal and he showed great composure as he was able to slip it back in and win the leg. Now 27-years old, Sagan beat out Australian rider Michael Matthews, with Chris Froome and many other world's best drifted across the finish a little out of reach.
Today's section is relatively good riding for sprinters, and it is expected that this is how the leg will end. There is so much talent in the field that the winner could literally be anyone. With no crashes to date, the Tour de France is wide open and riders are expected to be in a tight race across the next 200+km from Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel.
