Le Tour: Our Inhaler Insurance will help you breathe easy if Froome wins it

You sal-beauty-mol! It’s Money Back as a Free Bet if your selection finishes second to Chris Froome in the general classification or on any individual stage of the Tour de France...


Le Tour is back, and so is everyone’s favourite asthmatic, Chris Froome.

For most of the past few months, the organisers of the race have spent the majority of their time attempting to have Froome banned from participating, but it seems there’s no stopping this man. Poor old sickly Froomey will take his place at the start line at Noirmoutier-en-l’île with the aim of defending his totally legitimate Tour crown.

It really is quite remarkable how well the British cyclist performs in spite of struggling with a debilitating condition requiring him to pump salbutamol into his body with the joyous abandon of a US Army black-ops team covertly draining a Kuwaiti oil-field back in the 1990s. What a wonderful and life-affirming story it is.

But here at Paddy Power we believe in championing the underdog, so we’ve come up with a little something we’re calling INHALER INSURANCE.

If, as expected, the Team Sky star goes on to win the general classification and retain that iconic yellow jersey, we will refund your stake as a free bet if your selection finishes second to Froome.

We’ll also do the same for each individual stage he might win during the three-week tour.

A bit like Chris’s use of asthma medication, you can’t say fairer than that!
