Davis Phinney is perhaps America’s winningest road racer ever, with dozens or hundreds of sprint wins at U.S. races. He was the first American to win a stage of the Tour de France, in 1986, and won a second the following year. That year he also won the final edition of the Coors Classic stage race in his native Colorado.
Phinney lives in Boulder, Colorado, with his wife Connie Carpenter, the gold medalist in the 1984 Olympic road race. Their son Taylor is a member of the BMC team.
Phinney is the founder of the Davis Phinney Foundation, which aims to inspire and inform people living with Parkinson’s disease.
