Cancellara did pretty well there. Went at exactly the right moment to catch the breakaway and beat the sprinters.
Millar's tell-tale sorrow
The Daily Mail outdid itself on Saturday, welcoming the Tour de France to London by "exposing" Robert Millar, the Scot who won the King of the Mountains jersey in 1984 and now lives quietly in an English village, apparently as a woman. It's an old story - or at least an old rumour - and contributed the only sour note to an otherwise astonishingly enjoyable weekend for sport. Millar, the only Briton to finish a Tour in a winning jersey of any colour, is an authentic hero with the right to live the rest of his life as he pleases. The Mail is a rag.
Obviously it's Millar's right to live however he pleases, but I nearly dropped my lunchtime pint when I read it! Can't help but wonder if the drugs he used during his cycling career have had any affect. IIRC he was pinged for excess testosterone once upon a time.
- As featured in The Independent.
"This is not the time for namby-pamby promising youngsters who might just do something; not the time for building for the future. Pragmatism rules and they don't come more pragmatic than Rogers."

The Scotsman rehashed the Daily Mail article, but what interests me is the comments on it. Everyone is disgusted that it was printed, given that it's fairly needless.
What i find most suprising about Robert Millar is that he's no relation to David Millar.
Fair play to Cancellara though, deadset his tighs must be bigger then your average flyweight Spanish climber.
