Davis Phinney
Phinney claims to have won the most races in American history [1] and in 1986 became the first American to win a stage at the Tour de France while riding on an American-based team (the 7-Eleven Cycling Team) and the first American to win a road stage there. His racing career spanned two decades and included two stage victories in the Tour de France, a USPRO National Road Championship title, and the 1984 Olympic Bronze Medal in the Men's 100K Team Time Trial, alongside Ron Kiefel, Roy Knickman, and Andy Weaver.

Davis was diagnosed with
Parkinson's disease at the age of 40, and established the Davis Phinney Foundation (DPF) in 2004, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Boulder-based foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease – today and in future.
