Marginal gains at team Saxo is so marginal that he will improve even more for sure

He has no other choice with Contador in the team.

Was rogers maybe signed for the wt points (dauphine podium) or did the signing perhaps take place too late.

I understand this transfer.

But I have actually been a fan of Micks since back in his early Mapei days, so even though I don't like yet another d-link at Saxo, I can't say I'm overly annoyed if he is the guy joining.

Do you really believe that the numbers Rogers was producing in Dauphine whilst not being able to drop the likes of Weening, were better than those he produced when he became world champion in the age of doping? Just because he said his watt output was "higher than ever", that doesn't mean it's true.

Of course he couldn't say: "Nah actually, my FTP was 100 watts higher when I was 23!"

that is why I said almost.
Honestly if Rogers was the captain for Sky this year he would probably done a top 10 in the tour. You cant say that Kreuziger would have done anything better, and I like Kreuziger (not as a captain for my Astana, but still)
