Default Will ___ ever win a Grand Tour?

With a promising crew of younger riders coming through, have these guys missed their shot? Most of these guys have multiple podiums - okay VDB2 doesn't but he's just missed out a couple of times at the Tour. Same with Gesink but we had to have at least one Belgian and Dutchie in the mix. Just kind of threw Kreuziger in for the hell of it.

Select as many riders as you like.

*on the road, not in the courts.

Froome

The rest will have to get very lucky and some don't have a chance.

Yes I agree with you.

I was initially going to say just "yup" but that would have been totally unacceptable wouldn't it???

Froome and Rodriguez.

Andy is a lost cause. The rest is past it, or doesn't have the talent.

Come May, you'll be forced to take Bobby's name off this list.
