Scott Davis is heading into his second season as a ProTour rider and is hoping to land some strong results over the next few months. Prior to 2006, he moved to T-Mobile from Tenax and did a lot of riding for the team, while also finishing ninth on stages of the Tour of California and the Vuelta. This time round, he feels there may be a chance for more freedom in some races this year.
"I was pretty happy with how last season went," he told Cyclingnews recently. "I tried to many times to win but there were also many times when I had to help my teammates. When they win, it is also a victory for myself. You don't see me on television there but after the race, Michael and Klodi and all the racers are happy [with how I rode].
"Obviously things must be good because I have got another two years with T-Mobile. Overall, I was happy with last season.I got good experience in new races and hopefully I can build on that in the years ahead."
The former world junior track champion is due to get his racing underway in the Challenge Mallorca series, these races running from Sunday until the following Thursdayth. "I'll start with those and then I have another ten days at home before I had up to Belgium for the races there - Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne, West-Vlaanderen and all those," he said.
A full interview with Scott Davis will follow shortly on Cyclingnews.
