Davis Phinney celebrating his overall victory in the 1988 Coors Classic.
In 1986, he became the first American to win a stage at the Tour de France, while riding on the American-based team 7-Eleven Cycling Team.
Davis was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 40, and established the Davis Phinney Foundation in 2004, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Boulder, Colorado-based foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease – today and in future. http://www.davisphinneyfoundation.org/
