What many will consider to be the first big race of the season kicks off on Sunday 8th March, the 67th edition of Paris-Nice. 8 stages, 1,250 kilometres and very unpredictable weather for the Race to the Sun.
Paris-Nice betting odds are now available and show, unsurprisingly, Alberto Contador is clear favourite with many bookmakers. The value is to be found outside of Contador, perhaps with a bet on which riders will make the podium.
Velotips see some value in an each way bet on Maxime Montfort.
