Rogers set to leave Team Sky

Michael Rogers, who helped Bradley Wiggins to Tour de France glory, is expected to leave Team Sky for Saxo-Tinkoff.

Rogers, 32, has been with Team Sky for the last two years and helped Wiggins become the first British winner of the Tour de France in July.

Neither team have yet confirmed the move.

At Danish team Saxo-Tinkoff, Rogers would be linking up with Alberto Contador, under the leadership of team boss Bjarne Riis, and support the Spaniard in next summer's 100th Tour against Team Sky, likely to be led by Chris Froome.

Froome was runner-up at the Tour to Wiggins, who is expected to focus on the Giro d'Italia in 2013.
