Michael Rogers was a late call up to the T-Mobile squad for the Clásica San Sebastián and sounded this morning as if he wasn't worried too much about being in the final fight-up. "I don't know how my form is. I haven't done much since the Tour. I wasn't supposed to come here, I only got the call up a few days ago. Since the Tour, I have done the time trial in Buhl and a bit of training... nothing much at all.
"After this race, I will do the Regio Tour (16 - 20 August, 2.1), then the Tour of Britain (29 August - 3 September, 2.1) and then the world's. Things have been pretty relaxed for the past couple of weeks but I will get back into it a little bit now. Hopefully the world's will go well."
If Rogers manages to take another TT gold, it would further extend his remarkable record of three consecutive wins. It is clearly something worth aiming for. He said that he hasn't yet seen the course, but believes it is a selective one. "I have heard it is relatively hard but that is all I know," he stated. "It is obviously a big goal for me and hopefully it will go well."
