|Following the recent announcement that Lance Armstrong will ride for his seventh Tour de France victory, online gamblers are wagering in favor of cycling’s top professional to win this year's coveted title and set a another new record.|
“Armstrong’s fans really believe in him”, said Mike Foreman, spokesperson for BetUS.com. “Some say a seventh win is unlikely, but gamblers who watch cycling closely are wagering a lot of money on Armstrong standing on the winners’ podium once again this July.”
After six consecutive wins, bettors are backing another Armstrong victory in July. Despite strong stage performances from rival riders during last year's tour, Armstrong is still the crowd favorite. His announcement to compete in July was welcome news to his competitors too. It appears that Armstrong’s competitors are keen to race against the best.
BetUS.com has Armstrong listed as the favourite at 4/7, followed by Kloden at 7/2 and Ullrich posted at 9/1. Gamblers can bet on several Tour de France competitors at BetUS.com.
