Millar kicked off Cofidis, may lose rainbow jersey

VeloNews | Millar sacked, likely to lose world title

David Millar appeared in court Tuesday, and admitted he had used EPO.

Cofidis reportedly sent Millar a letter informing him he has been kicked off the team on Monday, and the UCI is likely to remove his world time trial championship, which would make Michael Rogers of Australia world champion.

"Under normal circumstances we cannot use confidential testimony from a police inquiry," an International Cycling Union official told AFP.

"But if Millar confirms what he said, either publicly or at a court hearing, it's not necessary to wait for a verdict in the proceedings."
