Millar gets Garmin glory at Edinburgh Nocturne

British rider wins at home

Scot David Millar won the Edinburgh Nocturne on Saturday. He worked with Garmin teammate Cameron Meyer to take his first victory of 2009.

"I really wanted to take victory on Scottish soil, especially in Edinburgh in front of my friends and family," said Millar. "It was a brutal circuit but a fantastic experience to race in such a spectacular setting, the atmosphere was perfect."

Millar pulled out of the Giro d'Italia last Sunday to begin his preparation for the Tour de France.

The race was based on a circuit around the Grassmarket in Edinburgh. Meyer, who positioned Millar for the win, was bettered by Rapha Condor's Kristian House for second.

Millar's next race is the Dauphiné Libéré stage race.
