David Millar is one of the most veteran racers on the Garmin-Sharp pro cycling team. But that 

does not mean we know all his little quirks -- though it turns out he doesn't have too many. Still, 

he is one of the many who ended his first ever bike ride in some sort of crash.

What is your first memory involving a bicycle?

Would be when I was in Scotland -- the first time I rode a bike I crashed into the back of a car. 

Must have been four or something. So there you go.

What career path would you have taken other than cycling?

It's unimaginable, to be honest. I can't even begin to think about it -- I was 18 when I turned pro

so never even had a chance to contemplate the real world. I'm very privileged in that sense. 

Maybe something in the arty, media side of things. 

What is your favorite race?

Tour of Flanders because it's the most spectacular, there is such a buzz about it. It's a wacky race 

but also a beautiful race -- it perfectly encapsulates what bike racing is about.

When you come home from a long time on the road is there something you 

like to do or crave?

I've spent my whole life on the road, so there's nothing really. I eat healthy at home so

there isn't much there either. I'm afraid I have no interesting answer to that one.

Is there anything unique about you that the average fan might not know?

Dunno, I put all in my book, didn't I! I've been fairly open the last few years so the perceptions 

people have about me are probably pretty close.

Ok, are there any quirks about you?

No, there's nothing. I don't think so, you'd probably have to ask someone else!

Should we ask your wife then?

Yeah... wait, God no, don't ask her!
