Welcome to the Allan Davis Journal for 2003. The ex-Mapei espoir has finally hit the big time with a two year contract on Spain's number one team, ONCE-Eroski. Six years with the Australian Institute of Sport has groomed young Allan from a national track champion to a cunning road rider and a potential Classics superstar. Follow Allan as he embarks on the ride of his life.

"He could win some big one-day Classics - probably more so than Tours - because he's got a lot of cunning and he's also got some speed. If he can make it to the end of a bike race with a group of 15 or 20 guys, he'd be one of the favourites in a bunch sprint."

— Brian Stephens, Australian U23 Men's Team Manager
