Yes it did to him too as he'd only gone into hospital to have an ingrown toenail removed......... :wink:


I found Ned Boultings commentary last night on the live show really babbling and confusing, the conclusion I came to at the end was that phillipa york was going to interview robert millar on one of the following shows . I thought phillipa york was an ex cyclist journo :roll: .

I'm a real "no gods, no heroes" sort of person, always have been.
But Robert Millar was a rider i carried a great deal of respect for.
His iconic efforts in the King of the Mountain shirt impressed me so much.
Having had a child enter transition i do understand the mental torment that can accompany the process.
I wish Philippa all the best in her life going forward.
I'm sure many of us do.

Hi,
I would like to hear more about cycling in the tour back in the day she (he) was cycling.
Much respected and let down I believe by his manager.
Be good as a historical bit in the ITV's show.

I attempted to speak to Robert Millar back in 90,s when he rode for the ill fated Groupmont team, it did not go well, I listened to her this year and she was totally different, I guess all those years ago he may have been trying to cope, its good that we have moved on and I admire her for her courage etc.
