As we take the first steps into the new year and a new decade, we can look forward to the many things that 2020 will have in store for us. In the world of cycling, undeniably the biggest event of the year will be the Tour de France.

One of the most exciting things about the Tour de France is that it can be unpredictable, with many factors changing the outcome of the stages. This can make placing bets on the race more interesting as the odds will change regularly. As has become a regular occurrence, bookmakers will be looking to attract new customers to their platforms so they will be running promotions like free bets for people looking to bet on the Tour de France. 

For those planning to watch the stages in person, it is important to plan your trip so you can see as much of the action as possible.

Thankfully, the race’s organizers have already released the routes for the 107th Tour de France, which will begin on June 27, 2020, on the Cote d’Azur, before finishing almost a month later in Paris.
