Yeah I think a lot of people could get on Thomas' side. He's never really proven himself in anything longer than a week though, so I guess it depends if Froome fades/crashes out. He comes across as a really genuine bloke in interviews though, so I'd support him on that alone
But he's kinda lumped in with the other almost-contenders, like Richie Porte, Dan Martin, Bauke Mollema etc that never seem to last the whole three weeks. You never know though I guess!
I'm so glad Landa left Sky though, you could really sense his frustration last year, having to sit and tow Froome up everything when he had the legs to pretty much go on his own.
