In 2005, Dave beat out Lance Armstrong in the prologue of the Tour de France to wear the highly coveted Yellow Jersey. Dave is the only American to win stages in all three of the European Grand Tours: Giro de Italia, Tour de France, and Vuelta Espana. Dave has podium finished multiple times at the World Time Trial Championships and is a record-breaking seven time National Time Trial Champion, earning him the nickname “Captain America.” Dave completed his pro cycling career in 2013 racing with Team Garmin.
Dave’s career has not been without set backs. Dave has been hit by cars four times while riding his bike. To address a desperate need for easing tensions and bolstering respect between cyclists and motorists, Dave started a non-profit organization in 2007 called Yield to Life. Dave has grown Yield to Life into a worldwide grass roots movement to create a safer environment for cyclists.
In addition to his commitment to Yield to Life Dave founded DZ NUTS, which makes premium chamois cream and personal care products for men and women cyclists. When Dave is not working on his professional ventures, he enjoys super heroes, mountain biking, and spending time with his family.DaveZabriskie.com
