DAVID MILLAR WRITES FOR CYCLE SPORT

Cycle Sport June 2008 cover

Slipstream professional David Millar was given carte blanch to write whatever he wanted in this month's Cycle Sport magazine.

The result is a wonderfully eclectic mix of articles in which the Scotsman interviews himself, talks to team-mates, gives away his training programme and picks out his favourite moments on the bike.

"We went through a couple of ideas, first being me just giving opinions and expressing myself regards the world of cycling," says Millar of his foray into publishing.

"Then I thought that would be too boring and predictable. In the end I decided it would be better to tap into the people around me... So I chose a select few people who could bring different and contrasting things."

"I hope this is an entertaining read; at least it will be a little less ordinary than just another interview."

Elsewhere in this month's magazine there is a frank interview with Mark Cavendish, we visit Filippo Pozzato at home, analyse Quick Step's roller-coaster Classics season, get close to the action in Paris-Roubaix, take a trip to Tuscany with Giovanni Visconti and much more.

Cycle Sport June 2008 issue is on sale from Wednesday May 7 at WHSmith, major supermarkets and all good newsagents, priced £4.
