All this talk about the Tour not being his Moby ***...sorry, it is, and should be.
Tour will come and likely more than one. The debate was more in the direction if there is anything beyond the Tour. On why doesn't he only do the Tour. Now personally i don't feel Roglič would trade everything else for one Tour.

Fleche is Fleche with or without Rog.
It just wouldn't be the same.
 
I'm sorry for unclear instructions. Rog, take care of yourself. Peak for July like a proper July fan, beat Poggers, proceed to also win Vuelta, then you can Vamos a la Playa and drink many cervezas if you want.
July headlines: "Intense days for Roglic: first he climbed the highest peak in France then he punched Pogacar when watching the Tour on a roadside"
Roglic: "According to my guru, these versatile preparations for Vuelta will pay off!"
 
It looks like no La Flèche Wallonne or Liège-Bastogne-Liège in 2022. Get well Primož and hopefully you will be healthy and in good shape for Critérium du Dauphiné. Or if needed to skip that too and prepare and go straight to the Tour de France. Personally i feel that a good performance at Critérium du Dauphiné could be beneficial regarding the Tour. Obviously if health issues would take more time and would interfere with the optimal preparation. Then to skip it.

P.S. Just seen that @acm already posted this info.

I'm so sad. I really wanted to see him have another go at Fleche. Before the season he said that last season he was surprised Ala passed him before the finish line. He said he won't let it happen again this year. I was ready for a good old fashion stomp on the Mur the Huy. Oh well...obviously to heal the injury is more important. Hopefully he'll be ready for the Tour.

What type of injury? I haven't read anywhere what exactly is wrong with his knee, just speculations.
He said in an interview for Slovenian media he felt pain in a muscle behind his knee. In an interview after Itzulia. I don't know if any other information beyond that was shared. Now if we take just this information and guess a bit. Muscle injuries in this area can in general take from one to three weeks or from one to three months to heal properly. Depending on how serious the injury was. In any case i feel that it's a good thing to skip this two races in April and hopefully after some time off the bike for the problem to resolve itself. Likely this involves no or only some light training in May.

In L'Equipe, according to their article he seems healed after one week of treatment but Jumbo's staff prefer to let him rest before going to an altitude camp in Sierra Nevada on April 25th: Wout Van Aert disputera Liège-Bastogne-Liège mais pas Primoz Roglic - L'Équipe (lequipe.fr)

Roglic se remet d'une douleur au genou
Son coéquipier Primoz Roglic, qui devait prendre le départ de la Flèche wallonne mercredi, puis de Liège-Bastogne-Liège dimanche, doit en revanche renoncer. Gêné sur la fin du Tour du Pays basque (4-9 avril) par une douleur musculaire derrière un genou, il semble rétabli après une semaine de soins mais le staff de Jumbo-Visma préfère le laisser au repos avant un stage en altitude, en Sierra Nevada, à partir du 25 avril.
Based on previous years, that Sierra Nevada altitude training in May usually precedes going to Tignes (although doing the Dauphiné might shake things up a bit).

So we can hope it's not too bad.
