Ed Hood has been following the Tour for many years and having one of his home Scottish riders in the Tour peloton added a certain sparkle. There have only been half a dozen Scots at a Tour Grand Départ, but all were champions.

Lowdown: When is doping not doping? Easy, when it has a TUE. In today's Lowdown, Lee Rodgers is in a comparative mood: Wiggins, Van den Driessche, Dekker and Rasmussen, do they have something in common? It's not black and white, but then it never is. Then there are the dopers of the past: Gonzalez, Millar and Ullrich, some fairing better than others after the end of their careers.
Lee Rodgers aimed his eagle eye at David Millar's new job with British Cycling in his Lowdown yesterday and was less than convinced at the validity of the appointment. Ed Hood, on the other hand, has penned his thoughts from the other side of the debating chamber and taken to the hustings... Ed's view:
David Millar: Ex-pro rider, ex-doper and now 'Doping Supremo' for British Cycling. Controversial would cover it and Lee Rodgers explains, in his usual forthright way, why Millar should not be working with a National sports body. British Cycling has always set its self up as a flag waving anti-doping establishment, hand in hand with Team Sky. Maybe it's not Millar time just yet.
Photo Special: David Millar seems to have been around for ages, 18 years as a Pro to be exact, but you need to take two years away for a doping ban. Love him or hate him, he has a fine palmarés. If you want to believe in him or not is up to you, but he still was a grand champion.
