Burglars ransack David Millar’s home as he competes in Dauphiné

Irreplaceable race memorabilia and family heirlooms among items stolen

Garmin-Sharp’s David Millar, riding his final season as a professional, has been the victim of a burglary in which thieves took items including irreplaceable mementoes of his career from his home in Girona, Spain.

The burglary was discovered when Millar returned home from competing in last week’s Critérium du Dauphiné, with the 37-year-old breaking the news to his followers on Twitter.

His sister Fran, who works for Team Sky, also took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the burglary.

She urged people to be vigilant over items turning up for sale on eBay.

She added that family heirlooms were among the items stolen, including a watch marking Millar’s role in helping Mark Cavendish become world champion at Copenhagen in 2011.
