Fran Millar + David Millar - Life before and after a doping scandal
Play • 55 min

Fran Millar built her reputation as a highly accomplished sports executive alongside Sir Dave Brailsford with Team Sky, rising through the executive peloton from Director of Business Operations to Head of Winning Behaviours and ultimately Chief Executive of the Ineos Grenadiers. In 2020 she traded cycling tours for catwalks, with her appointment as CEO of British fashion brand, Belstaff.

Alongside Fran is her former pro-cyclist brother, David Millar; a rising star of the sport until he confessed to doping and was banned in 2004. David came back to cycling as a competitor but also as a committed and vocal campaigner for clean sport. He now splits his time between broadcasting duties and his cycling apparel company, CHPT3.

Together in an interview for the first time, they talk candidly about living in the maelstrom of a doping scandal, how their sometimes conflicting approaches to clean cycling led to fractures in their relationship and about the crucial life lessons they learned from their shared experience.

This four way conversation was recorded on 16th August 2022.
