Maurizio Fondriest (born January 15, 1965) is a retired Italian professional road racing cyclist.



Born in Cles, province of Trento, Fondriest turned professional in 1987 with the Ecoflam team. He subsequently rode for Alfa-Lum in 1988, winning the World Cycling Championships along with stages in the Tour de Suisse and Tirreno-Adriatico. In 1991, riding for Panasonic, he won the UCI Road World Cup. In 1993, riding for the Lampre team, he won Milan-Sanremo, La Flèche Wallonne, the Züri-Metzgete, the Giro dell'Emilia, the general classification and two stages of Tirreno-Adriatico, three stages and the general classification of the Grand Prix du Midi Libre, a stage in the Giro d'Italia and the overall World Cup. He would never again have such a successful season, although he had another successful season with Lampre in 1995 he won a stage in the Giro d'Italia and came in second in a number of races (the Tirreno-Adriatico general classification, Milan-Sanremo, Gent-Wevelgem, La Flèche Wallonne, and a stage in the Giro d'Italia).


He retired in 1998 after riding for Cofidis for three years, and founded a bicycle manufacturer, called Fondriest, which makes carbon fiber bicycles.
