Rogers: a gallery of memories

Rogers: a gallery of memories

To put the career of Michael Rogers into context, it’s interesting to look back through the photo archives. He may have had some interruptions to his racing days but there are many highlights around the world for a young man from Canberra.

With the help of Yuzuru Sunada and Graham Watson, we delve into the vault and come out with some images to remind us of all that Rogers did as a professional.

Here are 52 photos of Rogers. It’s far from the definitive collection… for there are many highlights of a career that formally came to an end yesterday, but it’s a reminder of how he matured as a rider.
