Millar thanks Scotland team for showing faith in himScottish cyclist David Millar, banned for two years in 2004 for using the blood booster erythropoietin, won the Commonwealth games gold in the men’s time trial.

Millar was given special dispensation to compete at these Games by the Scottish authorities since he was not eligible to ride for Britain at the Olympics.

Millar won in 47min 18.66sec, 54.82 seconds ahead of Alex Dowsett of England.
