Cycling Boss: Will Consider Choosing Millar

British Cycling and Team Sky boss Dave Brailsford says David Millar will be selected for the Olympics if he is fast enough.

Millar is one of several British athletes now eligible for selection for the London Games after the British Olympic Association's lifetime ban on drug cheats was ruled illegal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

"He's available and that's the key thing, it's not my decision to make policy," Brailsford said.

"My job is to look at the fastest British riders who are elegible and choose the fastest team."

Brailsford was speaking at the announcement that British Cycling is extending its partnership with Sky for a further four years.

The new deal covers all levels and disciplines of cycling up to the end of 2016.

Ian Drake, British Cycling's chief executive, hailed Sky as being "a key factor in cycling's phenomenal success story".

"The growth of our sport over the past four years has been amazing," he said.

"Not only have our Olympic and Paralympic riders continued to deliver on the world stage, but we've also seen the emergence of Team Sky as a force on the road scene." In addition to providing support for the elite road racing team, the Sky Ride campaign has offered mass participation rides on traffic-free streets.

So far 688,000 more people have been encouraged to cycle regularly, with the one million target expected to be reached by 2013.
