PICTURE BY TIM DE WAELE The International Cycling Union (UCI) has confirmed Australia's Michael Rogers as the 2003 world time trial champion after confirmation was received from Britain's David Millar that he would not be contesting his disqualification from the event following an admission that he had used the blood-boosting product EPO. Millar was banned in August for two years by British Cycling after his admission of drug taking. British Cycling recommended that a number of Millar's results in the previous two seasons be struck from the record, including last year's time trial success in Hamilton, Canada. Rogers will now be awarded the gold medal and the rainbow jersey, while Germany's Uwe Peschel gets the silver and his compatriot Michael Rich the bronze.
