Millar confirmed for Newport Nocturne

David Millar of Team Saunier Duval-Prodir is interrupting his continental programme in order to ride this Saturday's Shropshire Star Newport Nocturne.

His presence will mean that all four British riders from this year's Tour de France will be taking part in the Shropshire event. Promoter Nick Jeggo said "It's been a fantastic year for British cycling with the Tour de France starting in London and more Brits than for many years taking part in it. Cycling in the UK is going from strength to strength so it's fantastic for bike fans that we have the top British pros coming to Newport."

Millar will take part in the "Battle for Beijing" a one lap time trial against the other Tour riders, plus Simon Holt, Newport's local cycling star and Olympic medallist and World Champion Rob Hayles. It is also likely that Millar will line up for the main Pro/Elite circuit race.
