David Millar, who returned from a two-year doping ban to win the British pursuit championship, still faces doping charges in France stemming from his original violation.

The Former Tour de France prologue victor is among ten riders and six former professionals who face trials 6-10 November for violating French anti-doping laws.

The case before the court in Nanterre involves Millar's former Cofidis team.

Millar, who served a two-year suspension after confessing to using the blood-boosting drug erythropoietin in 2004, returned to racing in June's Tour de France.

Though he raced for Britain at last month's world championships and won the British 4,000m title last Wednesday, the 29-year-old is ineligible for Olympic competition with Great Britain because of the doping incident.
