Plain and simple, he had a chance to lead and blew it big time. Too bad for sure but somewhat predictable given his lack of experience. With doubt he could be a contender in a few years if he keeps at it and gains some experience. Speed is only half od the equation
Read somewhere that he had turned off the iritrack because he thought it was causing issues with the bike electrically.

As I read that scenario, ASO didn't think that was kosher, so he got no credit (read: penalties) for the missed wp's on that stage.
