Robert Millar quotes

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.
