If it isn't ASO, then why should they be responsible for what happened at that race?
Its the same rules.
Shouldn't the thread title then be when will GVA get his San Sebastian second place?
It's not unheard of for one-day races to have two winners. Paris-Roubaix is an example.
 
What happened happened, in both cases the people involved accepted the final decision of the race jury. Makes sense for me that we should do the same.
Besides; who's to know that if GVA had been awarded the CSS win, then Yates wouldn't have accepted that? Or that if Yates had been awarded yellow then Froome wouldn't have accepted that?

You seem to focus on GVA's initial reaction after the race, thinking that the later claims about accepting Yate's win was just because he didn't want to get enemies. I, on the other hand, is more inclined to believe what he said after he'd had time to think, rather than his initial angry - with good reason - kneejerk reaction. I have a faint memory of thinking "What a tool!" when GVA first began his "I could've won!" whining, but now - after (re)reading that artice I initially posted here - I can only admire what a champion GVA is; graciously accepting defeat.

This implies it has happened several times. So lets have a list please.
