David Millar and his professional cycling career have definitely had its ups and downs.
The farewell film that has been made in his career has showcased his career well and has gained popularity in the cycling community, named a Time Trial. It documents how his powers as a sportsman started to wane, which was probably the reason he was dropped out of Tour de France in 2014 which was scheduled to be his last participation in the grand race. The first half of the film is all nice and sundry after which it all turns to dust is what David Millar has to say about the film. The comment might not be a judgment against the making of the film but what it showcases. It was indeed the time when he was supposed to end his career in an honorable way but his plans simply fell apart.
