Millar Tour presentation

David Millar has been acquitted by a French court on Friday of offences against anti-doping laws. Millar was one of 10 individuals facing charges in the so-called ?Cofidis case? - the Briton?s former team before he served a two-year doping ban.

Like former team mate Massimiliano Lelli, Millar was aquitted because the offences he was accused of were not perpetrated on French soil and because he is not French. However, seven others - all former Cofidis riders - were given suspended jail sentences ranging from three to six months.
