Many online Sports Betting bookmakers now offer fixed odds betting for cycling as a standard part of their services. Although cycling may not be a mass spectator sport in the same league as F1 motor racing, events like the Tour de France nevertheless attract a large audience, and cycling betting bookmakers generally cover the three main events in cycling, the World Cycling Championships, the Giro d'Italia, and, of course, the Tour de France itself.
Cycling Betting Opportunties
The Tour de France, which is run over three weeks in July of each year, is by far the most prestigous sports betting event in the cycling betting calendar. The Tour is also part of the UCI Pro Tour alongside the Giro d'Italia - another significant event for cycling betting enthusiasts everywhere - and Vuelta a Espania. The World Cycling Championship is, unlike the two main tours of France and Italy, a one day mass cycling event held in autumn of each year. Together, the World Cycling Championship, the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France make up cycling's famed Triple Crown.
