Millar is regarded as Scotland’s best ever road racer. His televised Tour de France successes inspired many. (That was when the TdeF was on Channel 4 at tea time!)
After finishing his professional racing career he became a team coach, though it was not a job that really suited him. Since then he has ‘disappeared’. Few people know where he lives – “maybe in the south of England”. His last public appearance in Scotland is believed to have been in 1998.
Moore was in a Scottish team coached by Millar so brings insights that other journalists would miss. However even this isn’t enough to shine light into dark corners of this enigmatic former star. “None of anyone’s business” was the straightforward response to one of Richard’s e-mail which attempted to find the truth behind one rumour that is attached to the apparent recluse.
