Cycling Australia has received correspondence from the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) advising the investigation into Allan Davis has been closed.
Davis was named in July this year in association with the Spanish police investigation 'Operation Puerto' into sports doping allegations. In September Cycling Australia received a file from the International Cycling Union (UCI) which was immediately referred to ASADA for investigation.
ASADA on Thursday (December 14th) formally advised in writing the case has been closed. Cycling Australia has forwarded this letter to the UCI.
"I would like to thank my family and friends for their support during recent months and my lawyers in Australia, Peter Fitzgerald, and in Spain, Pablo Arregi, for their work to resolve this," said Davis. "Now I can get on with doing my job, riding my bike and hopefully winning bike races again."
Davis has confirmed he is in negotiation with respect to his plans for the 2007 season.
"I had a short break off the bike but have been in training since September with the full confidence that I would be back racing for 2007," said Davis.
