Three-time world time trial champion Michael Rogers will be out of competition for at least eight weeks as he recovers from Epstein Barr Virus, his team announced Monday.

Team High Road physicians and Rogers’ personal doctors confirmed the diagnosis. It is the second time the Australian has had the virus.

Rogers plans to rest completely for at least four weeks, the team said.

Rogers has not felt strong since last fall, said his agent, Paul DeGuyter.

He “has been struggling to train consistently with intensity. While he is disappointed to not be racing, he is pleased that there is a confirmed and treatable medical reason for his difficulties,” DeGuyter said.
