The 30-year-old Australian has left HTC-Columbia, the successor to the T-Mobile team he joined in 2006 from Quick Step.

Rogers, who won the Tour of California and Vuelta a Andalucia this year, follows Caisse d'Epargne duo Rigoberto Uran and Xabier Zandio and local rider Alex Dowsett as new faces in the British team.

Rogers joins compatriots Chris Sutton, Matthew Hayman and Simon Gerrans in Dave Brailsford's squad.

The Canberra native took the rainbow jersey in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and has completed six editions of the Tour de France, finishing ninth on GC in 2006.
