Millar heard by CAS

David Millar's appeal hearing with the Court of Arbitration of Sport took place on Monday, January 24. The rider had appealed against his two-year ban issued by British Cycling in September last year. On his website, Millar stated, "It was a long procedure looking into the legal position of my case. At the end I was informed that a decision would be reached within two to four weeks but I don't have any idea what the outcome will be. I can't make any comment until I have received the verdict myself."

The appeal to reduce his two-year sentence indicates Millar will return to racing, possibly aiming at a comeback at the Tour de France 2006. His ban is currently in force until August 5, 2006, but if it is shortened even by a few months or the start date changed to the date of his confession, he will be able to ride the 2006 Tour.
