Giving him the benefit of the doubt and assuming he's clean now, he's still inconsistent. Sure he's blown chunks the last week in the tour... but he was 3rd in the prologue of this Tour (before he broke his ribs) and has won 3 races this year... Here are his 2010 results -- They don't look too bad to me and he still excels in time trials.
Everything I've heard about Millar is he is mentally fragile. Maybe if he wasn't such a head case he'd be more consistent?
It's easy to say someone's mentally fragile when they know they have no legs and they're looking at a 200k stage over a couple high passes with a mountaintop finish.
I would say the mental fragility follows the physical inability to recover.
