Hopefully they will fail to win places on the team.

Millar on the long list of athletes selected for "consideration" by GB. 5 of the following will make the team:

Mark Cavendish (Sky)
Steve Cummings (BMC)
Chris Froome (Sky)
Jeremy Hunt (Sky)
David Millar (Garmin-Barracuda)
Ian Stannard (Sky)
Ben Swift (Sky)
Bradley Wiggins (Sky)

Barring injury, Wiggins and Cavendish are pretty much locks for 2 of the spots, so that leaves the rest fighting for 3 spots. Before the CAS decision, Cav made some wishy washy comments about supporting the desire to keep the team athletes "drug free" and supporting the British cycling federation, but he can't really be critical of Millar given Millar's efforts on his behalf at Worlds last year.
