British cyclist David Millar has signed to ride for Spanish team Saunier Duval following the end of his drugs ban.
Millar will be back in the saddle in June 2006
The Scot was suspended for two years for using EPO, but can return in June 2006 in time for the Tour de France.
And Saunier are giving the 28-year-old a second chance and a contract that runs until the end of the 2007 season.
"He will be back on the road next June. Millar is a great rider, and we believe he deserves a second chance to display his talent," said a Saunier statement.
Millar's two-year ban ends on 23 June, just nine days before Le Tour.
That means the British road race championship on 25 June could be his first comeback race and the only opportunity for Millar to prove his form.
"I've been training very hard and I hope to make a successful return to racing in 2006," said Millar in September.
