The UCI has confirmed that T-Mobile captain Michael Rogers "has not been implicated by his team-mate Patrik Sinkewitz." In a statement released Friday evening, the UCI said "This was revealed after the UCI examined the dossier sent by the German Federation (BDR) following the statements made by the German rider. The document sent by the BDR showed that Michael Rogers is not implicated in any way."

Rogers had denied any involvement in doping, saying "I think anyone in the cycling world and most of the Australian general public know[s] that I'm an advocate for doing things the right way and I think truth will prevail." Certain media reports had linked the two riders because they rode together on teams Quick.Step and T-Mobile.
