It is a tough old business this cycling lark with few if any fairy tale endings. David Millar's last season has been a bit of a mixed bag. Early season promise celebrated with racing fancy shoes. In the middle dropped from Team Garmin for Tour de France and valiant but ultimately unsuccessful efforts in the Commonwealth Games Time Trial and Road Race. So good to hear that he starts the Vuelta in Spain today and you would want to wish him well. That's the word on the streets of Glasgow.
