Who do you WANT to win the 2024 Tour de France?

Pretty simple: Who do you want to win?

I want to win Evenepoel. He often had to work with his father, who is a contractor, during the summer and has plenty of experience in plastering and other chores. I have some stuff to do around the house and could use a plasterer. So if i can chose, i want to win Evenepoel. How do we sign up for this contest and how does it work? Is it like a raffle or something?
 
Vingegaard. Stage racing this year has been extremely boring and needs a feel good story. How many finishes with 3 teammates holding hands do we need to see? Or Pogacar riding 80km ahead of the bunch? What better story than for the defending champion to return from a catastrophic injury and beat his closest competitor by 30 minutes? Also hoping for a couple of other GC contenders lose huge chunks of time due to flats in Stage 9, would amplify the story a little more.

You'd have to fight Oumaima Rayane for that. Or you can take her out of business somehow. Anyway, I root for you!
 
1. Pogacar
2. Vlasov
3. Remco

At this point, the win would go for someone i don't really root for, but this would more or less be my preference among riders I don't find dislikable:

4. Carlos Rodriguez
5. A. Yates
6. Roglic
7. Jorgensson

Other than that, declare a non-winner TdF. Especially no Vingegaard, but also no Almeida or Ayuso.

Roglic, Remco, Kuss

Primoz bc he deserves at least one TdF win before he retires. He's talented enough, has had some bad luck with crashes and revenge for 2020 would be sweet. But I also just like the guy.
Remco bc he faces a level of scrutiny that no other rider does. He's not superman, or Eddy, but he's insanely talented and I'd love to see someone who's not a natural climber win.
Kuss bc I want him to back up the Vuelta with a "real" GC win.
 
Tough question. I would like:
- pogi for redemption for 22/23, but he already wins enough, so would be kind of boring
- vinge because of absurdity, but it would be a bit too absurd
- roglic because I suffered and cheered the most for him out of the candidates, but he would most likely have to profit from the other twos weakness/mishaps and I don't like such victories (like 2014) - and that point goes for everybody else
so I guess vino option
Edit: On second thought its clearly Bernal
