How much sympathy must I show for a rider's illness or injury before I complain about the effect it will have on my VDS team?
It looks like Michael Rogers has the Epstein Barr virus and will be out for 8 weeks (four weeks of no training). I'm sure it is rather frustrating to be constantly tired and unable to train, but at least he now knows the problem. Hang in there Mick!
On the VDS note, I thought Rogers was going to do really well this season. Last year he was looking on really good form until his crash at the Tour. I had some hopes pinned on him for the grand tours.
