David McCann (born 17 March 1973 in Belfast) is an Irish former professional road bicycle racer, who rode in the 1996, 2000 and 2012 Olympic Games. He was the Irish national road race champion in 2000, 2001 and 2006, and won the Irish national time trial championships a record 6 times (2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2009 & 2010). He last rode for the Synergy Baku Cycling Project, an Azerbaijan-registered UCI Continental team.[1]

Biography

[edit]

In 2005, McCann captured the overall title at the Tour de Korea. In 2006 he won the Tour of Indonesia; 2 stages in the Tour of Thailand; 1 stage at the Tour of Qinghai Lake and 1 stage in the Tour of Azerbaijan. He represented Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games time trial, finishing 5th.

On 20 September 2009, McCann broke Chris Boardman's long-standing British 25 mile time trial record in Port Talbot. Later that week, he finished in 11th in the World Championships Elite Time Trial in Mendrisio, Switzerland. His time of 1:01:36.35 was 3 minutes 40 seconds behind the gold medallist Fabian Cancellara. This was McCann's best ever performance at the World Championships. He was UCI ranked 31st on the 2009 Asian Tour, and ranked 4th for the 2010 season with 298.66 points after 11 wins.

He was UCI ranked 42nd on the 2011 UCI Asia Tour (75 pts), thanks mainly to 2nd place GC finishes in the Jelajah Malaysia and in the Tour de Taiwan.

He rode on the Irish three man team for the 2010 World Championships alongside Nicolas Roche and Matt Brammeier, finishing 68th.[2] He won a team pursuit bronze with Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, and followed this up with 5th in the Commonwealth Road Race.

In 2002, McCann received a six-month suspension following a positive test for Norandrosterone. He claimed a contaminated glutamine supplement led to the finding. Like several other athletes suspended around this time, McCann was sponsored by sport nutrition company Maximmuscle. After testing 3 nanograms above the permitted level, Laboratory tests showed a legal glutamine supplement he was using contained a minute amount of norandrosterone not listed on the label. This led to him being given the minimum allowed six-month suspension. [3]
