Edward Carrington "Ted" King (born January 31, 1983) is an American professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI ProTeam Cannondale.[1] He previously rode for Priority Health (2006–2008) and Cervélo TestTeam (2008–2009).[1] King was born and raised in New Hampshire.[1] A graduate of Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont, King currently resides in Girona, Catalonia, Spain.[1][2]

King made headlines when he was disqualified from the 2013 Tour de France. The disqualification was a result of finishing seven seconds outside the cutoff time on Stage 4.[3][4] Many felt that race officials should have taken account of his courage in completing the stage with a separated shoulder, and allowed him to continue the tour.[5][6]
