It was a hunger knock, Ulle said it himself.
As he had to push hard to stay with Basso and Armstrong he forgot to eat enough. He then totally bonked in the last km of Pla d'a Det.

Stijn Devolder / Vuelta a Espana 2011 - Stage 3: Alto de la Santa (Cat. 3)

I reckon that was just normal cracking; he clearly underestimated the climb and paid for it as it became steeper and steeper. I mean 5 minutes earlier he was dropping everyone...hunger knocks happen fast, but not that fast

Ah, now I'm convinced.

In my eyes that's all pure speculation. A lot of those "hunger knocks" are as likely cheap excuses for clinic stuff - or bad preparation (in a non-medical sense). But of course riders/d.s. will always claim that it was a "hunger knock".

Ullrich's "hunger knocks" have always had psychic components.

Also simply being isolated doesn't result in "hunger knocks".

And Xorret de Cati is just a terribly hard climb. Fabio Roscioli in 1999 sucked even worse than Taaramae and nearly rode backwards. That was some of the strangest things I've ever seen in cycling.

are you going to drop the clinic talk or do you prefer to get a warning?

anyway

to be honest i don't remember what stage of the vuelta it was, i remember watching it live and it was commented here on forum on the race thread where people mocked him, as per usual with devolder, but i don't recall what climb it was nor the race situation

Hunger knock of perhaps the last clean Tour winner.
