David Millar showed another aspect of his time trial abilities in the prologue of the Tour of Romandie, solid bike handling, as he maneuvered his Cervélo P4 to a top-five finish on the tricky circuit. Johny Weltz sent this report:
Today the start of the race was a short prologue on a 3.5 km technical circuit that was shortned to 3 km because it was just too technical.
We have several good TT riders in the team for this race and they all did a good first part of the circuit. But when it came to the technical second part it was Millar who showed his great bike skils.
David finished very nicely in fifth spot only 2 seconds down on the winner. Andrew Talansky was unlucky after a very strong first 2 km, he hit the deck in a corner and finished far down on the day but didn’t hurt himself.
All of our riders are well up on the GC for tomorrow’s stage wich has a hard mountain finish.
