Hesjedal Last Minute Entry for Flanders
Ryder Hesjedal was not originally scheduled to race the Tour of Flanders (tomorrow), however, he just dropped us a note that he has been substituted in by his Slipstream-Chipotle to replace injured Steve Cozza.
Just a quick note to let you know I will be riding the Ronde. It will be my second try after finishing the first time in 51st in 2006...not originally on my schedule, I have been training since Tirreno-Adriatico for the Ardennes classics later this month in building towards the Giro....I was called in as a replacement for Steve Cozza who unfortunately broke his collarbone in de Panne. Looking forward to biggest day of racing in Belgium!!
