Breaking: Davis Cleared to Race

Proving you can't win them all but you can lose them all, the UCI waved the white flag on its complaint against Australian sprinter Allan Davis. After Spain's Alejandro Valverde defeated the UCI's efforts to bar him at the international Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the UCI decided to drop the Davis case rather than have inconsistent outcomes. Davis is now free to ride in Sunday's road race, where he would be a candidate in a bunch sprint (albeit a very long shot).
