In the latest Cyclingnews Podcast, we talk exclusively to veteran rider Michael Rogers (Tinkoff-Saxo).

The Australian, who turned professional with Mapei in 2001, is a three-time world time trial champion and has helped both Bradley Wiggins and Alberto Contador to Grand Tour success.

Cyclingnews sat down with Rogers at the Tinkoff-Saxo training camp in Croatia this week to talk about the highs and lows of his 15 seasons as a professional, including riding with Johan Museeuw, his first experience on the cobbles, crashing out of the Tour in 2007, and his relationship with Cycling Australia following his positive test for Clenbuterol in 2013.
