A crash whilst training could well delay David Millar?s start to the season, team sources have told CW. The Saunier Duval pro was training on January 2nd in Gerona, Spain when he collided with another rider and came off his bike, hurting one of his hips.

?He couldn?t train for a week.? directeur sportif Sabino Angoitia said. ?Things are getting back on course now, he?s getting over it fine but as a result  of this delay David now won?t be riding the Tour of Qatar as his first race of 2007.?
