London - David Millar, who served a two-year suspension from 2004 to 2006 after admitting to taking the banned blood booster EPO, was included in the Great Britain cycling squad announced Wednesday for the London 2012 Olympics.

Millar was included in an eight-man road race squad from which five riders will be selected to compete at the Games.

It is the 35-year-old Scot's first involvement in an Olympics since the Sydney Games 12 years ago.

Following the end of his two-year suspension, he still remained barred from future Olympics under the British Olympic Association (BOA) bye-law imposing a lifetime Games ban on anyone found guilty of, or admitting to, doping offences.

However, that ruling was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in April, paving the way for the likes of Millar and sprint runner Dwain Chambers to return to Olympic competition.
