Allan Davis to lead Quick Step Down Under
Two more European teams, Quick Step (Belgium) and Team Milram (Germany), have
confirmed their place on the start list of the 2009 Tour Down Under.
Tour Down Under Race Director, Mike Turtur, announced today that Quick Step’s
lead rider for the event is Australia’s Allan Davis.
“Allan is the only rider to compete at all 11 Tour Down Under events (1999
–2009). It will be great to see him back at the race in Adelaide in
January,”said Turtur. Davis finished first on Stage 3 of the 2008 Tour Down
Under, taking his Tour Down Under achievements to three stage wins.
“Allan Davis has twice finished second overall at the Tour Down Under, in
2005 and 2008, so 2009 may be his year”, said Turtur. Davis will be joined by
Matteo Tosatto, a Tour de France stage winner.
Team Milram - Knees Leads Milram
Team Milram will return to the race, led by rider Christian Knees who won the
2008 Tour of Bavaria (Bayern Rundfahrt).
“Knees has had a strong season, finishing 29th overall at the Tour de
France,” said Turtur. Milram’s Martin Muller finished first in the Mountains
Classification in the 2005 Tour of Denmark, making him one to watch fight for
points for the Skoda King of the Mountain jersey.
