The withdrawal could be a precaution indeed. They don't want to make the same mistake as in Basque Country and jeopardize his Tour preparation. Healthy Primoz is needed to make July more exciting - otherwise we could be in for another demolition (Le Grand Bornand and the first week were great but the remaining 2 weeks of the race not so much).

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.
Thanks :) Well he's definitely not off bike, he was spotted last week in Slovenia a few times. And it seems he's working with his masseur, who helped him at the Olympics.

After today's race I'm even more disappointed that he's injured and couldn't race.
Btw, Grischa said for slovenian media that Roglic is still not 100%, but he's getting better and it's nothing to worry about. He'll skip LBL, but they have bigger goals later in the season.

Roglic sacrificed the Ardennes to stop Remco from winning a WT stage.

Confirmation Pog is barely relevant
 
Merijn Zeeman with a small update on Rog's condition: Merijn Zeeman: ‘We’d love to have Dylan van Baarle’ at Jumbo-Visma - VeloNews.com

While Jumbo-Visma continues to build for the long-term, the team’s short-term goals for 2022 revolve around the Tour de France. Primož Roglič missed the Ardennes with a knee injury but the Slovenian will be back to racing at the Dauphine in June.

“I think that it’s going in the right direction but he needs some time for that,” said Zeeman. “He’s training and he is being strictly monitored by the training staff to make sure that he’s doing the right thing.

“He’s not yet at 100 percent but he’s working on it. I don’t think he’s lost any time at all because he was already in a recovery period and during that time he would normally be on holiday. He’s back in training so he’s not missed anything but we have to make sure that the injury is completely gone. We’re cautious because we don’t want the injury to come back.”
 
Hard to tell what this injury really means…

On one side, I think Jumbo will rely on the best experts, who will monitor Primoz closely. Furthermore, it could be an injury which can be solved. They could find out what it is, and get him permanently healthy again.

On the other side, it could be an injury which will stay with him, and influence his whole further career. So, could be better, sometimes, and worse, sometimes.

I hope the problem will be 100% solved, and that it won‘t play any role in future.

Bob Jungels is a recent example of a rider whose career was massively damaged by a leg problem which was much more dramatic than they thought at first… :(
 
Dumoulin too

That's what I was thinking, although this seems, on the face of it, to be less serious. Dumoulin's issues were aggravated (or caused by) some kind of gravel or debris that apparently embedded in his knee.
That’s was probably very irritating. It took 4 months for the plastic from my earbuds to come back out of my ear after accidentally getting sutured.

And to elaborate more irritating in that something is wrong but you don’t know what and can’t fix it. Like I would have my ear hurt if it was touched or moved then was always irritated laying on that side. So now imagine not even riding the bike but walking, laying, or sitting.
 
Canned Heat's On the Road Again would be more suitable for a training ride. But then again, i don't know whether Roglic' momma left him when he was quite young.
Indeed both do have such vibe. When seeing happy Rogla on the bike and especially in that time of the year. For me admittedly Nelsons tune is more in sync with my heart singing. On such rare occasions. Likely it has to do a bit with the "The People's Champion" vibe.

P.S. For you likely Remco does that for you. Nothing wrong with that. Personally i tend to enjoy a good Nelson vs Canned showdown. Preferably the unplugged version.
