Millar gets 2-year ban
David Millar has been banned through August 2006, after admitting he used EPO in 2001 and 2003.
Millar also loses his world championship in the time trial, which passes to Australia's Michael Rogers.
The British Cycling Federation also DQ'ed Millar from the 2003 Dauphiné Libére, where he was 3rd overall, and the 2001 Tour of Spain, where he won the prologue and stage 6.
