With nine Grand Tour appearances and three World Time Trial Championship titles in the bag, Michael Rogers deserves his status as one of the most successful and well-respected riders in the peloton.

A product of the Australian Institute of Sport, Rogers turned professional with Mapei in 2000 and two years later tasted his first major success at the Tour Down Under.

Further victories followed in 2003 at the Tours of Germany, Belgium and the Route du Sud, before he claimed the first of three consecutive rainbow jerseys in Hamilton, Canada.

Rogers also went on to become the World Time Trial Champion in 2003, 2004, and 2005.

After switching to T-Mobile in 2006, Rogers outlined his credentials as a Grand Tour contender with a top-10 finish in the Tour de France, and was in contention for the yellow jersey again in 2007 before breaking his collarbone on the descent of the Cormet de Roseland.

Numerous podium positions would follow in 2008 and 2009, and in 2010 he won the Tour of Andalucia before becoming the first non-American to triumph at the Tour of California.
