BRITISH cyclist David Millar has been dropped by Garmin-Sharp from their team for the Tour de France just days after he let slip that he had been selected.

Garmin-Sharp said they omitted the Scottish veteran, who had been due to compete in his 13th and final staging of the race this month, due to health concerns.

The 37-year-old, who failed to finish at Sunday’s National Road Championships, wrote on Twitter: “I was going to be ready for the Tour. So sad my team didn’t believe in me after everything we’ve been through. Not cool.”

Millar, one of only six Britons to wear the yellow jersey, had to apologise last week after revealing his provisional selection.
