When will Heinrich Haussler recover?

I'm not asking this as in return to racing, after his fractured pelvis, but do you think he'll get back in top form? He was showing so much promise with Cervelo placing high in the classics and winning a TDF stage, but then it seemed like he's just had tons of bad luck with crashes over the years. Do you think he'll win one of the monuments?

Why do people talk about Heinrich Haussler returning to his 2009 greatness as if he was ever a great champion? He was lucky enough to get into a break on a Tour stage that wasn't contested by the favorites and their teams, and he was lucky enough to be unmarked and let off the leash in two classics which he still didn't win.

It's the same reaction I have to everybody constantly expecting Schleck to win everything he enters, when he is relatively foreign to the concept of winning bicycle races.

I never said he was great, I said he was showing promise. Thanks for the negativity.
