Only two riders in history have won the Triple Crown, Eddy Merckx in 1974 and Stephen Roche in 1987.

There are 10 flat stages, 7 mountain stages, 1 medium mountain stage, 2 individual time trials and 1 team time trial. The favorites in cycling betting for this year's race were Nibali, Contador, Quintana, and Roome. Those are the four favorites in cycling betting odds for the 2015 Tour de France.
