Wiggins 5-4 for Tour de France gloryBRITISH cyclist Bradley Wiggins is 5-4 favourite to win the Tour de France with the 32-year-old given the edge over 2011 winner Cadel Evans, who is 9-4 to win.
Wiggins finished fourth in the 2009 race and after a solid year he is looking to become the first British-born rider to win the race.
Wiggins won the Tour de Romandie in April and was a part of the Great Britain team that set up a victory for Mark Cavendish in the UCI Road World Championships last September.
Cavendish is 5-1 second favourite to behind 10-11 shot Peter Sagan to win the coveted Green Jersey. The juicy price about Cav reflects his intentions to perform well in the forthcoming Olympics and to help out Team Sky team-mate Wiggins in his bid for the Yellow Jersey.
He's keen to conserve energy and said: "We wanted to sustain how I'm going right now. I can't afford to be in Paris on my hands and knees."
Team Sky are 4-6 to take the most stages in the race followed in second by Team Liquigas-Cannondale at 31-20.
