David Millar

I've written so much about myself (my wife says it's my favourite subject, jokingly I hope, although sometimes I think she may be serious) that I'm going to keep this to bare essentials.

I became a professional racing cyclist when I was 19. I'm the only British rider to have worn all of the leaders’ jerseys at the Tour de France, been wearer of leaders’ jerseys in all Grand Tours, stage winner in all Grand Tours, and British National Champion in Road Race, Individual Time Trial and Individual Pursuit. Beyond my professional teams I've captained national teams at World, Commonwealth, and Olympic championships.

In addition to my 18 years of professional cycling, I've written two books: ‘Racing Through the Dark’ and ‘The Racer’ (about me), and worked on films with Stephen Frears, ‘The Program’ and Finlay Pretsell, ‘Time Trial’ (about me, I think my wife has point...).

Since retiring in 2014, I've become a commentator for British TV and coach for the GB cycling team. I am the co-creator of the brand CHPT3 (about my third chapter in life, ah shit, my wife really is right), and am an ambassador for Maserati, Jumeirah, and Sub Zero Wolf. Most importantly, I live with my wife and three small children in Girona, Spain, where I like to garden.
