Anyone who bets on the Tour de France knows that a major risk is that your selected rider will not finish the tour. Accidents happen all the time, and you never know if your rider will end up breaking a limb as he, or someone near him, crashes out.
Sportingbet is offering a great workaround for this. Place a minimum $10 bet on the 2011 Tour de France Race Winner market before the 1st stage and if your selected rider fails to finish the tour, Sportingbet will refund your stake in the form of a bonus bet up to $100. Only first your bet struck in the 2011 Tour de France Race Winner market will be eligible.
