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.
