Must be the knee. Sad.

Yates has been super unlucky in recent years and it kind of gets all handwaved away but "Yates is Yatesing" and being super inconsistent.
It's a mix of being unlucky and inconsistent. Yesterday it was obviously the knee. People underestimate the amount of "everything has to fall into place (and luck)" in order to win a GT. That's why there are only 5 active multiple GT winners out of which three will most likely never win another and the other two are Slovenians.

Did you just count Froome as retired?
 
Agree that he should drop out and ride the Tour for stages or polka dots. he can win any mountain stage from the favorites' group, well, not easily, but it would be easier for him than for a GC contender. He might be able to recover and take one of the Alps/Dolomites stages in the Giro but the Tour is a bigger prize. Would be great for BEX to win a Tour mountain stage and a sprint stage...
 
I know Simon won a Vuelta, but damn, this man could be one of the greatest stage hunters ever if he chose not to focus on GC. Great ride, even though he never felt like a protagonist throughout the stage he managed to conserve the legs and seize his opportunity.

Point of order - he was off the front trying to get in a break on the first climb, in addition to his final, brutal attack.
