Starting a thread like this outside the clinic was asking for trouble IMO. Bit like starting one called Armstrong's best stage win...

Hunger knock of perhaps the last clean Tour winner.

José Manuel Fuente on the rolling stage into Sanremo in 1974. Lost several minutes and a Giro he should have won, leading to endless common-sense defying solo breaks in a desperate attempt to win back the lost time.

Perhaps not spectacular per se, but EBH had some serious hunger knocks in P-R and RVV this year. Particularly in RVV when he had made the 2nd group (despite bad luck with fall) and looked set to finish in the top 5 as he was a much better sprinter than most people in the small group. In the end, he didn't only finish last from the group in the sprint - he managed to be caught by the peloton within the final meters. For such a strong rouleour/sprinter to not even being able to hold on to a small group on the flat shows just how bad hunger knocks can be.

If it's hard to avoid hunger knocks for normal people, I can't imagine how hard it must be for someone like EBH who can't eat gels/bars/energy drinks. Eating only sandwiches and drinking water after 250 km of torture on the cobbles...auch!

Contador at P-N 2009 comes to my mind, some guy immediately brought him water and stuff after he crawled to the finish

I remember that he got at least 3 bottles on TV after his attack, I dont think that he had a hunger knock

Dehydration and not enough sugars. What's the first thing someone does when he had a hunger knock? Drink a coke. He was begging for bottles of other teams, it was on TV. Everyone saw it.

He was begging for a while but he got at least 3 bottles or bars after his move (2 from his car too)

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.
