The top cycling race in Britain is due to get underway between September 7-14. The Tour of Britain 2019 betting odds suggest Mathieu Van Der Poel will headline in the eight-day race. However, other top riders including Politt, Trentin, and Cummings are eyeing on the victory as well.
The race is about to kick off in Glasgow city center of Scotland on September 7. It will cover eight stages with approximately 1250 kilometers. The route will go through several steep uphills and three iconic cities. As per online sportsbook news sites in Belgium, the race concludes in Manchester’s Deansgate on September 14.
The Tour of Britain does not attain the same popularity of Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta a Espana. However, it promises to deliver a great race. Last year, the French cyclist Julian Alaphilippe won the event. Wout Poels finished second, while Primoz Roglic in third. This year, new names might pick up the headlines, on top is Mathieu Der Van Poel as Tour of Britain 2019 betting odds indicate.
Van Der Poel a superstar in three cycling disciplines
The Dutch star Mathieu Van Der Poel has recently returned to the road after a dominating run in mountain bike races. He hopes to finish first in Britain with 3 odds at BetVictor. Van Der Poel recently switched back to the road at the Arctic Tour of Norway, winning the opening stage.
The 24-year-old secured a hat-trick of wins in mountain bike World Cup rounds in Lenzerheide, Switzerland on August 11. Whereas, in early this year, he took victory in one of the most memorable moments of the 2019 season at Amstel Gold Race.
Politt picked up the top 10s consistently this year
The 25-year-old Nils Politt is in his fourth year as a pro. He is coming off the Deutschland Tour, where he finished 12th overall. At the Tour de France, Politt lined up with his teammate Ilnur Zakarin, but he had a poor showing. The German sprinter did not win a race in 2019, but he is considered a rare beacon of hope for the Russian (Katusha-Alpecin) team. Probably, because he has picked up the top 10s consistently this year. It is hard to see him dominate Van Der Poel, but his Tour of Britain 2019 betting odds value at 8.
Trentin won stages at all three Grand Tours
Another top rider who will aim for a victory at 8 is the 30-year-old Matteo Trentin. He has 23 career victories on his name, winning stages in the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France. He also won four stages at the Vuelta a Espana in 2017.
Trentin is not just a gifted sprinter, but he can also climb, and that was the reason why he could win a solo stage at Tour de France this year.
Cummings to race on his home soil
The 38-year-old British rider Steve Cummings considers retirement at the end of the year. However, before he makes any decision he will have his eyes on this home race, with 15 odds to win, according to online sportsbook sites in Belgium. He will race with big confidence after winning the 2016 edition, and finishing twice as a runner-up.
