David Tanner (born 30 September 1984) is an Australian professional road cyclist, currently riding for Vérandas Willems–Crelan. In December 2014 he was announced as part of the squad for the IAM Cycling team for 2015, alongside fellow Belkin Pro Cycling rider Stef Clement.[1] In September 2016, shortly before the disbanding of the IAM squad, Tanner suffered multiple injuries after being hit by a car whilst training, resulting in him spending three weeks in intensive care. The following year he joined the Vérandas Willems–Crelan team in July, after agreeing a deal to the end of the year with team manager Nick Nuyens, Tanner's former teammate at Saxo Bank–SunGard.[2]
