Allan Davis has left team Quick Step after one and a half seasons with the Belgian team. Quick Step has not been able to offer Davis a new contract with the withdrawal of Specialized as one of the team’s sponsor. Davis’ leaving has been confirmed a day after Patrick Lefevere, the team manager, announced his interest in signing two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador for the 2011 season. “I held four spots open, one for Contador himself and for three of his close teammates. I won’t fill them until the opportunity presents itself,” Lefevere told Belgian newspaper Gazet van Anwerpen on Thursday. Davis has yet to announce a new team for 2010, but it is possible that he may go to his brother’s team, Fly V Australia. They plan to race the Tour de France in 2012.
