TDF preview: Limoux-Montpellier
The majority of your money should go on Cavendish...
Apart from Paris, this will be the last chance for the sprint specialists, so the Tour Connoisseur is expecting their respective teams to control the head of the race and bring it together for a mass sprint to the line.
There can be no doubt that this is a day for the sprinters, with the contenders for the overall taking a back seat as they prepare for the Alps.
He has three wins so far in this edition and is proving once again the man to beat, so it's very hard to look past the Manxman.
When he finished 3rd a few days ago to Cavendish, Farrar proved his sprint form is still there.
He has won a stage, beating the best, and with the brilliant Norwegian leading him out, he must be considered.
The German got the better of Cavendish on stage 10 for the win and has come close on a couple of other stages.
Now that he knows he can do it, look out.
You can throw a rug over the outsiders, including Jose Rojas, Alessandro Petacchi and even Hushovd and Boasson Hagen considering their stage wins.
Has struggled to get up there in the mass sprints, this being his first Tour De France, and given he is still very young, it was probably to be expected.
He does possess a raw turn of speed though, so if he can be dropped in the right position at the right time, who knows?!
The majority of your money should go on Cavendish, with three stage wins, a finish that suits him and the team, it's the logical thing to do.
Andre Greipel poses a threat though. He survived the Pyrenees better than Cavendish and could be just that little bit fresher.
Tyler Farrar is similar to Greipel and has a great lead-out team, so you would bet similar to Greipel.
Petacchi is another to consider putting a little on. He likes the long straight finishes and has a mountain of experience, so he maybe can outsmart his younger rivals.
