Hoy happy with Millar decision
Sir Chris Hoy has backed David Millar's initial selection in the Team GB cycling team for the London Olympics.
Millar, banned for two years in 2004 after admitting to taking the blood-boosting agent EPO, has been named in the initial eight-man squad for the men's road race in the capital this summer.
The British Olympic Association were forced to drop their lifetime ban for doping offenders after a court decision last month and Millar's controversial inclusion at this stage has been backed by four-times Olympic gold medallist Hoy.
Hoy said: "I will 100% be standing behind whoever is part of the team. I'm comfortable with whoever is selected because they are eligible for the team, it has never been about individual athletes.
"For me it's been about the future and having a meaningful deterrent against people thinking about taking drugs."
The eight-man squad will be reduced to just five on June 29 so Millar could yet be ruled out of the London Games.
