Rogers was awarder the bronze medal for his ride in the time trial at the Athens Games in 2004. He recorded the fourth quickest time but winner Tyler Hamilton would later admit to doping and in 2012 during the London Games he was formally stripped of his gold and Rogers was elevated. The three-time road time trial world champion (2003-2005) placed eighth in this event in Beijing and came sixth out of 143 riders in the road race. At London 2012 he rode superbly to place sixth in the time trial and was a member of the road race team eventually placing 91st.
