Millar awaits results of drug suspension appeal

Yahoo! Sport | Anxious Wait For Millar

David Millar made his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport today, arguing that he should have been suspended for 1 year, rather than 2, and that his suspension should have started the day he confessed rather than the date of his disciplinary hearing.

Millar claimed that new rules adopted only 1 week after his hearing should be retroactively applied in his case, which could put Millar back in the sport as soon as this summer.

If the panel agrees only to date Millar's suspension from the date of his confession, Millar would be able to return to racing just in time for the 2006 Tour de France, expected to kick off in London.

The panel's decision is expected in 2 to 4 weeks.

David Millar is a drug cheat who should never be allowed to cycle again. He's only sorry he got caught. His defence story was a crock. Anybody who knows him will tell you he's been doing narcotics since he was at school!!!!
