Michael Rogers comments on the best and worst this season
saxotinkoff Team Saxo-Tinkoff Aussie, and multiple time trial world champion, Michael Rogers had a perfect final race in the 2013 as he won the mountainous one-day race, Japan Cup 20th of October. Previously this season, he finished second overall in Tour of California and made a significantly tireless effort during the Tour de France where he just missed a spot in the top-10 overall ranking in the final part of the race.
Here, he answers six questions on the past season and the season to come:

What was best experience this season?

“From a personal point, winning Japan Cup was the highlight of the season for me but from the team’s point of view, winning the team classification at the Tour de France was a fantastic experience and demonstrated our strength as a team.”

What was the most disappointing experience this year?

“The biggest personal disappointment was losing top 10 spot in the general classification in the Tour de France with only few days remaining of the race.”

What was the biggest surprise in the world of cycling in 2013?

“Chris Horner winning the Vuelta at the age of 42.”

What was the funniest moment?

“It’s hard to pinpoint the funniest moment of the year as we are constantly laughing and smiling within the team. I feel it’s really one of the strengths of Team Saxo-Tinkoff.”

What are your goals for the coming season?

“Once again, I’ll be concentrating on shorter stage races, while at the Tour de France, I will support Alberto and his quest for overall victory.”

How do you spend time during the off-season?

“I spent most of my off-season enjoying time with my three daughters and my wife.”
