David Clinger (born November 22, 1977 in Los Angeles) is a former professional road racing cyclist from the United States. He represented his native country at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada.

In 2010, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency banned him for 2 years for use of synthetic testosterone and modafinil.[1][2] In August 2011, David Clinger was issued a lifetime doping ban by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after testing positive during a random test while serving a prior doping ban. Clinger accepted responsibility for using clenbuterol for performance-enhancing purposes, USADA said. The second violation prompted USADA to issue the lifetime competition ban.[3]
