Scot David Millar has been named in the Great Britain cycling team for the Olympics, alongside Sir Chris Hoy.
Millar was mired in controversy when he was handed a two year suspension in 2004 for using the blood boosting drug EPO.
Now a fervent anti-doping campaigner, the Malta-born Scotsman was last month officially cleared to compete at London 2012 after the British Olympic Association's bylaw banning drug cheats for life was revoked.
Millar returns to Olympic competition for the first time since Sydney bidding to help a British squad seeking to improve on a haul of eight gold medals in Beijing four years ago.
British Cycling performance director Dave Brailsford said: "We have selected what I believe to be an excellent team going into an Olympic Games and we have a good mix of experienced Olympians alongside young riders who are making their Olympic debut.”
Sir Chris Hoy said the Olympics in London would be “an amazing experience”
He said: "There's a great atmosphere in the team and we just need to keep putting in the hours in training and make sure we're in the best shape possible for race day.
"This is my fourth Olympics, but my first home Games, and it's going to be an amazing experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us."
