Australian Michael Rogers will replace Christian Knees in Sky’s line-up for Milan-San Remo this Saturday, March 17.
There was some confusion over the exact Milan-San Remo roster for Sky after the official start list was published with Bradley Wiggins in place of Knees, who has withdrawn due to illness.
Paris-Nice winner Wiggins, however, will not be starting the race. His next scheduled event in the Tour of Catalonia, Spain, over March 19-25.
Sky is aiming for victory at Milan-San Remo with two options: world champion Mark Cavendish or Norwegian Edvald Boasson Hagen.
