A Season of Discontent

Ryder Hesjedal's season of discontent takes another turn for the worst with his abandonment after a fall during the third stage from Montreux to Meringen.

Yesterday, was Hesjedal's comeback since withdrawing from the Giro due to an upper respiratory infection, he finished stage 2 in second place overall.

Whilst it's unsettling at first to read the Garmin-Sharp statement, there's optimism, "He suffered multiple, severe contusions and abrasions to the right wrist, hip and knee and left shoulder, elbow and knee. Preliminary CTs show no fractures no neurological pathologies. He will remain under close observation by team medical staff. Hesjedal's health is the team's priority-depending on how his recovery progresses, team medical stage as of now hopes he may be able to train in a few days time, although this will depend on his recovery."

With the Tour only 17 days away, I'm really hoping he bounces back!
