Millar happy with Tour performance despite no stage win

David Millar, Tour de France 2009, stage 6

David Millar (Garmin) could not resist going on the attack on his local training roads near Girona during today's sixth stage of the 2009 Tour de France.

He was the first to attack after 20km and then jumped away alone 30km from the finish in Barcelona. He was still a minute in front of the bunch with ten kilometres to go and the crashes on the greasy roads slowed the peloton but he was caught with just over a kilometre to go as the climb to the finish at the Montjuic kicked in.
