After months of tension between Rohan Dennis and his team, Bahrain-Merida, the Australian dropped out of Stage 12 a day before the individual team time trial, the discipline which he is currently the world champion.

According to a News Corp report, the South Australian has had problems with his time trial skinsuit after wind tunnel testing earlier this year. Upon request, a new batch of suits were ordered but none of them fit correctly, provoking an angry reaction from the rider.

What is AFL? Australian Football, also known as AFL, Aussie Rules or Footy, is a fast, skilful and tough game played by some of the fittest professional

The team is investigating the “accumulation of factors” that led to Dennis quitting according to John Allert, managing director of McClaren’s pro cycling arm - joint owners of Bahrain-Merida.

“We’re obviously very disappointed, and no one is more disappointed about what happened yesterday than Rohan himself,” he said.

“It’s a very complicated situation, and a very sensitive situation. I’d love to say there was just one reason. I think there’s probably an accumulation of reasons.

“Some of those reasons I can talk about. Some of them are probably best for Rohan to talk about when he feels ready. I’d love to say, ‘It’s simple, it’s one thing’, but the fact is it’s not.

“Foremost out of respect to Rohan, I don’t want to go into any great detail. I spent time with him last night and he wants to regroup and recover.

The Vanished (Korean: 사라진 밤) is a 2018 South Korean psychological thriller film directed by Lee Chang-hee, starring Kim Sang-kyung, Kim Kang-woo and Kim Hee-ae. It is a remake of the 2012 Spanish film The Body, directed by Oriol Paulo.


“No one knows Rohan better than Rohan himself. He’s an elite athlete who is proven on the world stage to perform at the absolute outer extremes of what he’s capable of doing. If he doesn’t feel he was going to be able to do that ... I can’t judge that, and he needs to make that call himself.”

Allert said the team still supported Dennis and the Australian had been happy and in good spirits when around his teammates.

“Rohan is a contracted rider, he’s a rider the team loves. He spent time with the other riders last night and everyone has kind of huddled around him,” he said.

“We’re in the epicentre of the situation and it’s too soon to make any great judgment calls on what happens in the coming weeks and months, other than he’s a required rider in team Bahrain-Merida.”

Even though the events on Stage 12 tipped the Australian over the edge, the rider's relationship with the sport has been in jeopardy for some time, with thoughts of quitting flooding his mind in the past.

Dennis spoke about his struggles in an extensive interview posted last month on the Stanley Street Social podcast.

The hour-long chat, recorded in January, took an astonishing turn at the end when Dennis was asked what advice he would give to an aspiring cyclist.

"To this day, there are times when I think 'what the hell am I doing?'," Dennis said.

"In 2018 I reckon there were half a dozen times when I thought 'I could quit - right now' and January last year was the big one.

"If someone said to me 'Rohan, don't stress - if you quit today I will make sure you never have money issues for the rest of your life' I would have taken it.

"Then I just sort of chugged away. I just snapped out of it."

As the interviewer - himself a former top-level cyclist - could not contain his surprise, Dennis continued.

"I did not want to race my bike ever again. I was over this sport," he said

"But after a while you snap out of it and maybe it's a a bit of a depressed period, for a week or something, then you realise why you like it again.

"I have these little periods when things aren't going well, across the board, sometimes it's a bit tough.

"It's the same with every job ... you're bashing your head against the wall 'what am I doing? what am I doing?'

"Eventually that wall shows a crack and you're 'that's why I'm doing it', but I still go through those periods."
