Millar psyched for Salzburg

Cuenca time trial winner David Millar said to Cyclingnews this morning at the start village in Granada that Saturday's time trial is important, but not crucial to his world championship plans.

"I am psyched for Saturday, of course. I will take things as easy as possible until then. I used yesterday as a bit of a training session, going hard on a bit of the first climb, and now I am just taking it easy.

"On Sunday I am flying out to Austria and am then in the hands of the [British] national team from that evening. I think they have it all organised, training sessions and everything. I will try to keep things going, just carry on riding the bike. If I stop, it might be counterproductive so I will just keep it rolling."

Millar said that he hasn't fully savoured his TT win last Saturday. "To be honest, my head is so focused on the world's at the moment that I can't really relish it. I am just going 100 percent for the world championships. That was a total bonus [the win], I wasn't expecting that, to be honest. Even if I don't win on Saturday, I am not too bothered as, like I said, my head is focused on the worlds. Anything else is a bonus. I will just practice technique on Saturday, using a different position. It will be interesting."
