I think Froome is the inevitable favorite and the who will win again the Tour (if nothing bad happens to the #sky team).

We haven't seen the best of Froome this year, or even the best of #sky.
They've been holding back on previous races to dominate the Tour.

Porte, Contador, Valverde, Quintana, Pinot, Bardet, etc will fight for the remaining top places.

I hope I'm wrong, because if I'm not, it'll be another boring Tour.

We'll see if the changes in the parcours will stir the pot :D

Unfortunately, I agree with you. However, this parcours MIGHT offer some opportunities to level the playing field. Or it could be all over but the shouting by stage 9. For sure, though, the lesser podium spots should see some excellent competition. AND, if it ISN'T Froome in yellow with minutes in hand after stage 9, it COULD be a real battle royale! Keep your fingers crossed.

. . .
I will admit that Richie Porte ex(c)ites me as much as listening to the audiobook version of a Kafka play, narrated by United Nation bureaucrats, in Icelandic. So if it isn't him, I am fine with that.
Dude. Gnarly. My ass puckers up reading that.
