Richie Porte’s odds slashed to win Tour Down Under 2015

Richie Porte is expected to step up to claim his first Tour Down Under title according to punters with online bookmaker, starting the $2.50 favourite with 34% of the money wagered.

The only other challenger in single figures is former Tour de France winner and last year’s runner-up Cadel Evans on $7.00 – still yet to claim a Tour Down Under.

South African Daryl Impey, who placed 7th last year, is surprisingly the second best backed with 23% of support, currently at odds of $13.

“With Simon Gerrans’ withdrawal you’d expect a much more open field but Porte has sprinted to the front of the betting with only Evans over his shoulder,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
