Saunier Duval's David Millar, 14th on the overall standings after Tour stage 5, is happy to be back racing the roads of France. "I feel good and happy to have come back," he said. "I now remember what it is like to manage tiredness and psychological strength in the course of a grand tour like this, but I’m trying to adapt one day at a time."
After his 16th placing in the prologue, time trial specialist Millar is looking forward to improving his result in Saturday's race against the clock from Saint-Grégoire to Rennes. "I´ll try to be relaxed tomorrow and do my best on Saturday. I’m in good form and have worked hard. I’m confident in the outcome," he said.
