Speaking before La Flèche Wallonne, where he came 13th, he told Cyclingnews how his problems came at the hardest point in the race, but since then he’s had a great couple of days, and is back on track for Sunday’s Liège–Bastogne–Liège.
His three favourites for the race are Omega-Pharma Lotto’s Philippe Gilbert, who Hesjedal says “really wants it”, Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) and Joaquím Rodríguez (Katusha) – although he says the level is very high across the board, so there are a number of riders who can win.
