Default Rogers to CSC!

So Rogers has left Sky early, and is joining CSC. Is this essentially an admission of past indiscretions? If so, surely Sky aren't clean now. Rogers has been stronger there than he ever was anywhere else.

We'll see if someone at Sky will gets petty and tries to turn Rogers over to anti-doping. If Sky's not doping, then another historic year of results in 2013 should be no problem at all!

Rogers has gone from one protected captain/doped team to another. Well played sir!


It sounds like Sky is set up for an UNspectacular 2013.

Contrador is so dirty hiring Rogers. Sky with ZTP got rid of him because they don't tolerate dopers

Oh, noes. The super secret marginal gains that no other team ever thought to use will now be handed over to the enemy. Expect the Saxo-Tinkoff train to smash everyone in the mountains as they ride to the cols at 450 Watts.

Contador has never ridden with marginal gains before. Sky are in BIG trouble.

It is possible that any doping Rogers may or may not have done at Sky was purely individual.

If Pat's clever he awards the spare licence to Argos-Shimano.

Avoids a Sky doping-or-not debacle in next year's TdF with Saxo.
And also keeps Oleg's influence at bay (and Makarov/Tschmill).

I get it, they are a very individual team.

Gotta love the headline: Flight to the Contador: Rogers quits Wiggins' team

So Rogers quit? Quit because he knew he had no option as in couldn't sign the new deal or because Sky let him say that as opposed to an outright statement that he was an ex-doper and didn't qualify under their new zero tolerance policy?
