David Francis is a former member of the United States Cycling Team (1989–1991) and was part of the next generation of American cyclists (after the success of Greg LeMond and Andy Hampsten) to compete in professional cycling, a sport traditionally dominated by Europeans. His teammates included Lance Armstrong, George Hincapie, Bobby Julich and Jonathan Vaughters. He was originally coached by Bob Bills, but in 1990 USA Cycling Team Director Chris Carmichael hired former European professional rider, Rene Wenzel, to replace him. Francis traveled and raced internationally as a member of the United States Cycling Team for three years before leaving the team in 1991 to serve a two year service mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada where he founded the David Francis Law Firm,[1] a civil trial law firm that specializes in personal injury law.

Francis earned his BA from Brigham Young University and his JD from California Western School of Law.
