His recovery seems to be a problem. His shape has dropped significantly in the third week
Also in the second week he wasn't so good.
None remember Mont di Chat? He was near to be dropped two times

Aru is just not that geat when it's a really hard stage/a war of attrition, he's better on easier stages with a long/hard climb at the end. I think the lack of racing miles also plays a part.
Still, this time h managed t limit his losses without a team to help him.
 
Regardless of whether or not Aru finishes on the podium I think he can be happen with how he has performed at this Tour, especially after an off year last year. This Tour should prove to him that he can be a contender in any future GTs if his preparation is right.
 
It will depend on how the routes look next year. Not sure if the Giro actually want to try and cater the route once again to Froome, but lots of TT kms may return to the Tour to give Dumoulin a better chance to upset Froome.

Based on his performance this year Aru should target the 2018 TDF.
I agree. He just said he wanted to come back as soon as possible( allowing the route , i add)

So he's going to the Vuelta, good news for the Vuelta, otherwise Froome might have a free ride now with Aru and Lopez that could become more of fight...
He looked completely spent at the end though. But we know he'll attack regardless :D

I think he looked spent because he was sick. If he has recovered from that, he could do pretty well. He should be a genuine contender for the win.

Maybe he was sick because he was spent... Illness is often spoken about as some external aspect that riders have to deal with, but I think high level performance and (the risk of) getting ill influence each other. Aru should nonetheless be a contender! :)
