PARIS (AP) - World champion cyclist David Millar has been taken into custody and questioned about allegations that he distributed doping products at last year's Tour de France, a judicial official said Thursday.
Police said the British rider was taken into custody Tuesday night in the southwestern city of Biarritz - less than two weeks before the July 3 start of this year's Tour in Liege, Belgium.
Millar risks being placed under investigation - a step short of being charged - in connection with the probe opened a year ago.
Eight people have already been placed under investigation in the probe, most of them connected, past or present, to the Cofidis team that is home to Millar.
