When you feel you need (water) bottles the hunger knock has already struck you lol.

It was right before the Vesten of the Muur. He was dehydrated.

i don't think cancellara had a proper hunger knock, if what happened to him is classified as an hunger knock then nibali also had one at this years lbl and another one at last years GdL.

they just overestimated their strength imo

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.
Agree with this. Contador tried using the hunger knock one on the Galbier stage when he was clearly suffering all day. Its better to say they forgot to eat than that they had an off day. Hunger knock gets you all of a sudden.

Taaramae just cracked, which is completely different.

Everyone saw how he was begging everywere for some foods, even with other teams. A more clear example of a hunger knocks doesn't exist

Cadel Evans (in his Mapei days), stage 17 2002 Giro-- bonks wearing pink jersey which he only got day before. Loses 17' and Savoldelli took the jersey.

Stijn Devolder / Vuelta a Espana 2011 - Stage 3: Alto de la Santa (Cat. 3)
I seem to remember that it was a gearing problem. Still, with Devolder we can't be sure
