Understanding the Cycling Schedule

Road cycling, or just “cycling,” takes place[-professionally-from late January (or February) until October/November. It’s the Union Cycliste Internationale’s (UCI) World Tour, representing both men and women. There are roughly 30-plus events every season, all of which have odds at the sportsbooks.  

Tour de France

The Tour de France is one of the most prestigious and renowned cycling races. It spans 21 stages and covers a total distance of approximately 3,417.5 kilometers.
The race takes place over several weeks, with each stage presenting different terrains and challenges for the riders. The final stage traditionally starts in Chatou, north-central France, and concludes in Paris, with the finish line positioned in front of the iconic Champs-Élysées

Olympic Track Cycling Events

The Olympic Games feature various cycling events, including track cycling. These events encompass both sprint and endurance disciplines for both men and women.
Sprint events include the individual sprint, team sprint, and keirin. Endurance events comprise pursuits, points races, Madison races, and more.

Grand Tours

The Grand Tours in cycling are the three major professional stage races: the Giro d'Italia, the Tour de France, and the Vuelta a España. These races are known for their grueling nature and attract the best all-round riders in the pro peloton. The Giro d'Italia, held primarily in Italy, usually takes place in May and June. The Tour de France, as mentioned earlier, is held in July. The Vuelta a España, held mainly in Spain, typically takes place in August and September.

Each of these races consists of multiple stages, and the overall winners are determined based on cumulative time or points earned throughout the race.

Tips Before Betting on Cycling

As a niche sport, dig deep to research cycling. Before you bet, however, here’s some advice.

  1. There are no point spreads in cycling betting. Rather, most of what you find are outright odds. Put another way, you’re just wagering on who wins the race. Usually, there’s a runaway favorite. Before any betting, convert the moneyline odds into win probability to figure out who’s worth the wager.
  2. Weather is a big factor in cycling, bigger, perhaps, than in most sports. We suggest you take notice of the forecast before the race, as well as of any changes in road conditions around the area.
  3. Although they make the news when they happen, freak accidents  do not usually happen in cycling. However, when they do, they could lead to unexpected results. Still, it’s not a good idea to put too much stock into that oddity when dissecting the cyclists’ odds.
