Most bookmakers including the always innovative Paddy Power have slashed
Alberto Contador's odds to hold onto the yellow jersey all the way to Paris. He
is currently 1/6 at the Irish bookie.
Andy Schleck has one more chance to wrestle the yellow jersey off Contador's
back and he has looked in great form up until the controversial incident when
his bike's chain came off and Contador sped off.
Contador is also the favorite to win Stage 17 at 5/4.
Roberto Coladangelo spokesman for Paddy Power said; "Has the two-horse race
got one more story to give? With many expecting Schleck to build a lead for
Contador to attack in the final stages, Monday's controversy has put the
Spaniard in the driving seat and Andy will need to find something special to win
both tomorrow and this years tour."
