He seems like he has a pretty good head on his shoulders for the most part. I really like Rouleur Magazine as well. He's not necessarily one of my favorites and I think it will take a Quintana friendly type of course for him to ever beat Froome, but he's interesting and I hope he does well.

I like Bardet. Can he win the Tour maybe, but he has the pressure of being a Frenchman on a French team trying to win the French Grand Tour.
LOL @ winning a sprint on the top of the mountain. My only advise to him for that is to make sure he's dropped Valverde before he gets to the top of the mountain for that sprint.
Truthfully I think he has a better shot than Quintana does. He doesn't have nearly as strong of a team, but he's proven he can lead his team. He is not a pure climber, but he is good at descending. Now someone needs to convince him he needs to get better at time trials.
