- Jeg ville gerne have Michael Rogers. I mine øjne er han en ekstremt talentfuld rytter og har været det siden juniorårene. Han vandt enkeltstarten ved OL i Athen i 2004 og har været verdensmester i enkeltstart også. Jeg har sagt til Michael, at han skulle se at få sig en snak med Bjarne og komme over til holdet, for Bjarne er meget dygtig til at arbejde med enkeltstartsspecialister som Michael, og jeg mener, at han er et meget stort talent, der desværre blev lidt lost i nogle år.

I told Michael that he should get a chat with Bjarne and come over to the team of Bjarne is very good to work with time trial specialists like Michael, and I think he is a very big talent, unfortunately was a little lost for a few years.

No problem but it was mostly thanks to LaFlorecita who had already listed the riders on the team And I agree, the team is looking very strong for next season and I'm definitely looking forward to it - hopefully they get many wins

Roger's signing for Saxo was totally unexpected.

Bertie just needs to turn up in July and avoid a crash, to win.

Firstly,the UCI needs to confirm the WT license of Saxo-Tinkoff,then they need to win a lot of races and to accumulate points.Do you know Contador points are still discounted because of that UCI ruling which says that after a doping suspension,the points of that rider are discounted from the team total.So Kreuziger or Nick Roche need points in 2013 to maintain the team in WT(assuming that this team gets the license and not the two sprinters team).
