Millar positioned for De Panne overall, Chainel wins stage

David Millar, Paris-Nice 2010, stage five

David Millar positioned himself to win The Three Days of De Panne overall today in Oudenaarde, Belgium. The Scot of team Garmin-Transitions made the final selection of seven men, which included stage winner Frenchman Steve Chainel (Bbox Bouygues Telecom).

"I was very intelligent today," Millar told Cycling Weekly. "Sometimes when I feel good I get too carried away, but I was very calculated today. I wanted to win, it is a big difference when you really want to do something, and that was the case today. I used my head."
