Francesco Gavazzi (born 1 August 1984) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Androni Giocattoli–Sidermec.
Gavazzi was born in Morbegno. In 2012, Gavazzi participated in the Tour of Beijing and won its queen stage leading to the Great Wall of China. To add to the difficulty of the day, the air quality was deemed as "severely polluted" by the local authorities.Gavazzi closed down an attack by Team Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen and grabbed the victory. His consistent placings in the other stages netted him the second spot in the overall classification behind Tony Martin (Omega Pharma–Quick-Step). However the win in Beijing was Gavazzi's sole victory during three years at Astana, and in November 2014 it was announced that had signed a one-year deal with Southeast Pro Cycling for the 2015 season.
