Britain's David Millar is out of the Tour of Poland due to injuries sustained in Spain last week after a training ride crash.
Millar failed to start the opening team time trial prologue thanks to the injury, although sources close to the rider say that there is not a question mark against his participation in the UCI Road World Championships in Stuttgart at the end of the month.
The double British champion crashed as a result of a tyre blow-out whilst out training near Girona. He came away with bad road rash on his left side, although the wounds are thought to be superficial enough to heal fully before the Worlds.
The World Championships is Millar's main objective before the end of the year. He will leave his current Saunier Duval-Prodir squad when the season ends to join Team Slipstream-Chipotle for 2008.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
