David competed at his first Paralympic Games in Sydney finishing in seventh place in both the CP1/CP3 road race and the CP1/CP3 time-trial.
He then took a break from the sport, returning to the Great Britain Cycling Team in 2005 and winning one gold and two bronze medals at the World Championships that year. He followed that performance with back to back gold medal hauls in the road race and time-trial in 2006 and 2007.
David was favourite for gold at his second Paralympic Games in Beijing and he didn’t disappoint, taking the wins in the T1-2 road race and the T1-2 time-trial.
Ahead of London 2012, David maintained his reputation as one of the best trike riders in the world winning gold in both the road race and time-trial at the 2010 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships, Baie-Comeau, Canada as well as picking up silver medals in the time-trial in 2011 and 2009.
At London 2012, he added two more medals to his collection, defending his road race title and winning bronze in the time-trial.
He continued to add medals to his collection after London 2012 with gold and silver at the Road World Championships in 2013 in the road race and time trial respectively.
More medals followed in 2014 with silver in the road race and bronze in the time trial before he took a break from the sport in 2015 – returning in May 2016.
He claimed two more Paralympic medals at Rio 2016 with road race silver and time trial bronze.
In 2009 David was awarded an MBE.
