David Millar, the now retired holder of leader’s jerseys in all three Grand Tours – the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España – is cycling’s elder statesman with a reputation for being both outspoken and elegant.
Naturally uncompromising and with 18 years of WorldTour and Olympic experience, Millar is a key part of our product development team: “I’m very proud to have contributed to Factor Bikes ONE’s rapid progression from concept bike to racing machine,” he says of our work together in creating the new Factor ONE. Like us, he stops at nothing in the pursuit of aerodynamic and aesthetic excellence.
His achievements include winning four stages of the Tour de France; five of the Vuelta a España; one stage of the Giro d’Italia; and British national road and time trial titles. He is the only British rider to have worn all four Tour de France jerseys; one of half a dozen to have worn the yellow jersey, and the first of just two British riders to have worn the leader’s jerseys in all three Grand Tours.
His attention to detail, driven in part by his quest for time trial perfection, combined with his sophisticated sense of style, makes him the perfect partner to collaborate with in our pursuit of high performance perfection.
