'Marmite' Millar targets Olympic Road Race glory
Talking exclusively to Ned Boulting, David Millar says he's 'like marmite' among cycling fans, and that winning the Olympic Road Race would be the greatest achievement ever in British cycling.
"I had decided not to make myself available for selection. I thought there would be too much collateral damage," Millar says of the forthcoming Olympic Road Race in London, six days after the Tour ends.
"Then it became clear that the majority was behind me and wanted me in.
"To some people I'll always be a doper, to others an anti-dope campaigner. I guess I'm marmite.
"As far as the [Olympic] race goes: Any team looking at us will know we're a strong team. we have to look after Cav, he's our main man.
Box Hill will be interesting - it's a classic.
"We will have top work with other teams like the Germans and the Americans and then let they're sprinters go head to head at the finish.
"We will have to watch any breakaways, if it's strong riders we can't let them go more than one minute ahead.
If we win it will be British cycling's biggest ever achievement."
