The only reason I think he can do it is because his rivals who'll be more rested (coming from the Giro) will lose a lot to him in the long flat ITT.
But actually I am not sure he will win, I'd rate it like 25% chance for Froome and 75% for everyone else, so Froome is still the biggest fave :p

Well this is the year to do it. Froome is the man to beat in July - His strongest (potentially) competitor is riding the Giro first. Check Quintana off. AC would have to pull off the performance of a lifetime. The Tour is pretty much settled. Quintana won't be riding the Vuelta. I guess Nibali and Aru will be his biggest challengers....it's possible he could beat them.

No, you can't interpret it that way. Having Froome as the favorite for both the Tour and the Vuelta, doesn't mean that you think he can do the double.

I wasn't really sure why Strade was in this thread along side the monuments, but I predicted GVA in the race thread :)
