. . .comprehensive review of green, polka-dot, and young rider's jersey contenders
Folks, can you spell com-pre-hens-ive? Chapeau search!

I imagine you are planning on filling the maillot jaune category later?

Chris Froome #sky #tdfsky

Tom Dumoulin #sunweb    One Giro and a very solid #2 in this year's edition
Nairo Quintana #movistar    Luck and consistency are lacking, as well as time trialing

Mikel Landa #movistar    A proven domestique may not a Tour rider make
Rigoberto Urán  #efd     Consistently near the pointy end, with a suitcase full of courage

Alejandro Valverde #movistar    Mr. Re-tired -- oops, no, that was #mitchelton who re-tired with Pirellis. Alejandro is just aging gracefully.
Romain Bardet #ag2r    Love the AG2R aggression these past few years. Real race animators, but Romain remains the perennial bridesmaid.

Adam Yates #mitchelton    The Giro, as magnificent as it was for two weeks, confirmed that the Yates need to work on 3 weeks worth of stamina if they want to win a GT.
Geraint Thomas #sky #tdfsky   If only he can keep the rubber on the road, he might move up a star or two
Warren Barguil  #fortuneo    I'd give him a half-star if I could. I just don't have any confidence he will do better than fifth in Paris

Porte? Are you in this year?

Who have I missed?
