Philippa York, while racing professionally as Robert Millar was often someone of few words. But those words were carefully chosen and could be cutting or insightful.
“Why stop for a cup of tea when out training, when you could have one when you got home? Either you were training or you weren’t.”
As a racer, training was taken seriously. Rumour has it Robert would do a dozen reps of the Crow Road to try to simulate Continental climbs.
