Allan Davis, who claimed a bronze medal at Sunday's National Criterium Championship by winning the bunch kick, will follow a vastly different path to his road rivals in coming weeks. The Bundaberg cyclist, presently off-contract and officially a "free agent" will leave Australia tomorrow for a World Cup track meet in China, following on from a training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport.
Davis' longer-term goal is a place in Australia's track endurance team for the Beijing Olympics. "I've had a good break and started to get back into it now," Davis said. "Off to China tomorrow for a World Cup on the track, and I'm looking forward to that and then back to Bundaberg after that for a few weeks before Christmas."
