What the hell, Fabio? He hasn’t set la Vuelta alight, but he has been really bad. I can only recall a 10th place some days ago? Seems like his Vuelta 2015 was a fluke. And then there were his yellow days in the 2017 TdF. Best case scenario: This is an off-year, as off as it is possible to be. Worst-case: This has become his level. Either way, he has to step up next year, or switch to stage-hunting. Never was a favorite of mine, but a (temporary, for now) decline like this is sad to watch, particularly since he should be in the prime years of cyclists.
