ABC Sport - Tour star Rogers named Australian Cyclist of the Year
The 23-year-old from Canberra made his Tour de France debut this year and finished the gruelling three-week event as the highest placed Australian in 42nd overall.
His support in the mountains played a major role in ensuring his Quick Step team-mate Richard Virenque snared the climber's polka dot jersey.
In 2003 Rogers became the first Australian to claim a medal in the elite men's road time trial when he rode home for silver at the World Championships in Hamilton, Canada.
