Can Alaphilippe win the tour?

We had a discussion back in March and the idea that he could be a contender was pretty comprehensively dismissed. I have to admit I always doubted it too but saw the potential for this situation and backed him at 300/1. I am happy to have hedged a large part of it and I really expect him to fade out of the top ten now; but the romantic in me wants to believe and I think it would be wonderful for the sport. Has anyone changed their mind? Is it possible? He just has to follow Thomas' wheel they say but that is not true Ineos will send Bernal up the road, the same way Thomas won it last year. Can DQS cope?

Interested to hear real opinions.
