IT was crash, bang, wallop at Le Tour on Thursday with Chris Froome saved by the jury as he kept the yellow jersey.
The defending champ was forced to run without a bike for the final kilometre following a crash with a motorbike and although he was overtaken by Adam Yates and Nairo Quintana, race organisers decided the Brit should keep the overall lead.
So it’s on to stage 13 and the set-up should suit Froome who is second favourite at 3-1 with Boylesports behind Tom Dumoulin (3-1, Skybet) while German ace Tony Martin is worth a look at 5-1 with William Hill.
Elsewhere, England’s first cricket Test with Pakistan reaches day two and there’s also the likes of rugby and tennis worth a punt so let’s hear your sporting tips and chat.
