David Millar has agreed an extension to his contract with French team Cofidis, the day after completing the Tour de France.
David Millar won Saturday's time trial in the Tour de France
The Scot, who was plagued by illness during cycling's premier event, finished 55th in this year's standings - 1 hour, 54 minutes and 38 seconds behind winner Lance Armstrong.
But Millar enjoyed a stage win during the time trial in Saturday's penultimate stage and was very unlucky not to win the opening prologue, when his chain fell off in the closing stretch.
Millar, who has signed a deal until 2005, had been critical of Cofidis for the problems he encountered on the opening day of the Tour.
And the Biarritz-based rider was reportedly thinking of moving to another team to help achieve his ambition of winning one of the big Tours in France, Italy or Spain.
He said: "I had thought about changing but never really negotiated with another team. The way we worked in Le Tour suited me."
Millar, 26, has now won three stages on the Tour after he won the prologue in 2000 and the stage to Beziers in 2002.
