Road Cycling Paralympian
Davis is a combat-wounded veteran who has been cycling since 2012. He joined the U.S. Army in 2002 and reached the rank of Staff Sergeant. On June 3, 2006, he rode shotgun in a Humvee as it drove through Ramadi, the most dangerous city in Iraq at the time. While turning, the truck ran over an IED. The blast threw the truck two stories in the air. It flipped backward and landed on its roof. Due to his injuries, Davis had to have his left leg removed. He lives with his wife Jamie and four children in Fremont, Indiana, a small town of roughly 2,000 people. In 2014, Davis began road cycling, earning a spot at the 2016 Rio Paralympic games. He competed in the road race and the road time trial, placing 4th and 6th respectively.
