About David

David Stone started cycling when he was just eight years old. He joined the Great Britain Para-Cycling Team in 1995 and rode for the team until 2000 after which he decided to take a break from the bike. In 2004 he started racing for the team again and he soon became a world champion, winning gold in 2005 in the team sprint. Since then he has gone on to dominate at world championship level on the road.

David entered the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008 with several world titles on the road under his belt, and true to form, he did the double on the road, winning gold in both the road race and time trial events. His success earned him an MBE and he was also recognised by his hometown of Leeds as their Sportsman of the Year in 2010.

In 2012, David was once again victorious in the road race and he took the bronze medal in the time trial event. At the 2013 UCI Road World Championships in Baie Comeau, Canada, David won the gold medal in the road race and he backed that up with silver in the time trial. The 2014 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships saw David win a silver in the T2 road race and a bronze in the time trial.
