I think I remember Andy having a pretty good hunger knock in 2007 Tour and also Armstrong in I think 2003 Tour when he beat Ullrich by a minute or so on GC. From what I remember he did not drink enough and was dehydrated as well on what was a really hot day.

Andy was in 2008 on the stage to Hautacam, where Voight dropped Piti on Tourmalet and Canc fell back from the BotD to drill it on the downhill.

passo coe 2002, authentic pajarones gallore. poor cadel and frigo. 2002 wasn't such a funny year.
I can't believe it took 25 posts to mention this incident. Evans on the Passo Coe was one of the most memorable and dramatic examples.

Hunger knocks are when your body runs out of carbs - your body can only gets its fuel from your fat, not to be confused with anearobic debt - which will happen when you go to fast up a mountain.

Someone who hasn't got the new "Kreuziger is a crappy rider" fever that has been going on since that day. It was just a bad day, not his regular level. Welcome aboard

And that's exactly why Kreuziger will stuggle to win or podium a grand tour, his lack of consistency, even the though the stage win in the Giro was a very good one.

Probably not the most spectacular but McEwan had a shocker one one of the TDF mountain stages. I'll have to pull out his book to see when but make an wonderful read of what it is like when you are totally spent.
