Australian Michael Rogers is being linked to a move to Team Sky for the 2011 season. Rumours are rife that the triple time trial world champion will jump from his current HTC-Columbia squad to the British-based outfit.
Rogers' past few seasons have been plagued by injury, thwarting his efforts to place highly in grand tours. This year he returned to shape in the early season, picking up wins in the Tour of California and Tour of Andalusia.
Neither Rogers nor Team Sky has commented on the rumoured move.
It is likely that Rogers will concentrate on one-week stage races rather than chasing grand tour podium appearances.
Rogers' next major appearance will be at the World Championships in his native Australia, from September 29-October 3.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
