After showing some fantastic form in the Giro d’Italia, Mark Cavendish is 5th favourite to take the Points Classification and Green Jersey at the 2008 Tour de France at odds of 15.00 with Sportingbet. There is much speculation that Cavendish will not complete the Tour for fear of ruining his Olympic ambitions although he clearly showed he can get through a Grand Tour in the this year’s Giro.
Favourite to take the Points Classification is Thor Hushovd at 3.00 followed closely by Oscar Friere at 3.50. Out out of sorts Robbie McEwen is 6.00 and we believe this to be the best value odds as McEwen always comes good in the Tour de France. An interesting outsider is Stuart O’Grady at 101.00 although CSC’s focus will be on the General Classification.
