Froome, J-rod, Gesink (I think he could do it, now that he has realized always going to the Tour is a mistake).
And of course Andy (got to stay true to my roots ).
Would like to vote Samu, but he's getting old and I'm not sure if he still has what it takes to contend for the top step. Hopefully the Giro will give us some clues to that.

Froome and Rodriguez certainly.
Froome, maybe, already this year. Rodriguez, probably, a Vuelta when he realizes the Tour is too difficult and refocuses back on the home tour.
And Andy, off course. But, at the moment, I can't say for sure.

You're right. I always forget he's a late bloomer.

Froome has an excellent shot, especially this year in the Tour.

Rodriguez still has a chance, but I think he really needs to focus on the Vuelta, or maybe the Giro, as those routes and the bonus seconds fit his style. If he doesn't win one by next year, I think his GT window is closed.

Gesink.
Not convinced he is not a Tour man after this year. He needed to enter the Giro this year because of sponsors or rather lack of. Once on a more stable footing I can see him going back to focus on the tour. We sill see.
