Tour de France Odds and Lance Armstrong

November 30th, 2010 Cycling Betting

Tour de France odds action is full of legendary performances. But nothing would top a win by 7-time champion Lance Armstrong in the 2009 running of the Tour de France betting odds competition.

While it would be an online sports betting long shot, it’s not entirely impossible and it’s a very compelling reason to tune into this year’s Tour de France odds competition.

Tour de France athletes are rarely known outside of cycling circles but Armstrong has become not just a legend in the Tour de France odds and the wider cycling world but he’s become a household name. On his way to winning seven straight Tour de France odds events he established himself as a sporting legend and the greatest cyclist in the history of Tour de France betting odds.  He has also become an inspiration to millions by overcoming life-threatening cancer in the early part of his career, prior to this magical Tour de France odds run.

However, by any stretch of the imagination Armstrong’s best days in the Tour de France betting odds are far behind him.  At 37-years old it’s amazing that he’s even fit enough to compete.  But he’s proven millions of nay-sayers wrong before and he would love to do it again in the 2009 Tour de France betting odds. After three years away from the Tour de France odds, he’s essentially tried to do the impossible. No one in the modern era of Tour de France odds racing has taken off that amount of time and even come close to the winner’s circle.  And at his age, no one has even dared try it.

But you can never count out Armstrong as Tour de France odds witnessed earlier this year.  After breaking his collar bone early in his comeback it looked as though the entire season and the 2009 Tour de France odds competition would end before it started.  He worked to get into competition shape and put in a very strong performance in the Giro de Italia, even challenging for the title.

It seems the bigger the event, the better he performs and there is no bigger stage than the Tour de France odds. He’ll be riding on a top team with plenty of support and will have plenty of competition from teammate and former Tour de France odds champ, Alberto Contador.

It’s not often that a 37-year unretired rider is among the favorites in the Tour de France odds, but there has never been another cyclist like Lance Armstrong. As crazy and as improbable as it sounds, Armstrong has to be considered among the top five riders in the Tour de France odds completion this year and if he’s still in contention over the final stages, an eighth Tour de France odds title seems likely.
