The Australian was a central figure in his team’s assault on stage 13 to Saint-Amand-Montrond. Despite those efforts, Rogers’ captain Alberto Contador still finds himself on the back foot, just over four minutes down on Chris Froome with less than a week of racing left.
On the rest day Cyclingnews caught up with Rogers at the Saxo hotel with the Australian stating that although Contador would not give up trying to win the race it had become increasingly difficult given Froome’s current form.
Rogers also talked about the times set on Mont Ventoux, where Froome stormed away from Contador and his other GC rivals.
