Betting on cycling races
Between stage races, one-day classics, and world championships, bwin offers you plenty of opportunities to place bets on cycling in almost every month of the year.
Depending on the movements of the peloton, our online sports betting site will offer you wagering opportunities on the best road cycling races of the season. Cycling is an endurance sport, and a cyclist primarily requires aerobic power for long periods of time at relatively high intensities.
Betting on major cycling tours
The Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España are the three biggest cycling tours. These events bring together the best cyclists for three weeks of competition. The Tour de France is the only category 1 event, followed by the Tour of Italy and Spain, which are category 2. Make a Tour de France bet now.
For these events, bwin offers bets on the winners each day, including the high mountain stages, the intermediate stages for mountain bikers or the flat stages that favour the sprinters, and the individual time trial. Place your bets on the Giro d'Italia on our online betting platform.
You can also bet on the other classifications, such as the best sprinter, best climber, or the best World Tour team, in addition to the one that will win the overall classification.
Recommended betting on cycling
Cyclists cannot maintain top form last throughout the season. Teams need to plan as best they can in terms of who will be in shape and is peaking in one or more events. As a recommended bet, it is essential to look at who is coming into form.
In the weeks leading up to the race you want to bet on, you should check the performance of the cyclists and their teams. As the season progresses, those who have not yet won will be thirsty for victory, and every new day offers a chance to redeem themselves.
Betting on one-day races
With no obligation to participate, the top World Tour teams are automatically invited to 35 scheduled events each season.
The five biggest one-day cycling events are called classics, five of which carry the distinction of Monuments of Cycling. These races are Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and the Tour of Lombardy. Make your bets on Milan-San Remo, which is traditionally the first major event of the season.
At the end of the season, the World Cycling Championships bring together different events, with the Men's Road Race being the final event. The winner will wear a rainbow jersey for the entire following season.
In addition to this are the UCI ProTeam teams which correspond to the second division, fight to complete the field. Places are available, especially if they're racing at home.
