David Millar, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage 16

David Millar used the mountain time trial in today's stage of the Giro to test himself out for the flatter test against the clock in Milan on Sunday.

The Scot clocked a time of 30-51 on today's uphill effort from Belluno to the ski resort of Nevegal. Although 24th, almost two minutes behind race leader and stage winner Alberto Contador, Millar looked at the effort as "an opener" for the Giro's finale.
