David Miller’s book ‘Racing Through the Dark’ is in our cyclist’s library; and right from the dedication page (he dedicates the book to the peloton, in a beautiful eulogistic tone) it’s a good read. Since reading it I feel I know Millar a little, so it was nice to spot him warming up in Muro yesterday. He was out and about while the rest of the bigger name riders were still in the bus, riding his bike up and down and checking it over. Millar doesn’t seem unusually fastidious about his machines from the book, so perhaps there was something in particular that wasn’t quite right with his bike yesterday. As this photo shows, there was no shortage of team staff to help!
