Johan Le Bon (born 3 October 1990) is a French road bicycle racer for UCI World Tour team FDJ.


Riding as a junior in 2008, Johan Le Bon became European Champion[1] and World Champion in just one month time.[2] He also won the bronze medal at the European ITT Championships that year.

One year later, he joined professional cycling team Bretagne-Schuller.[3] The 2010 edition of the Route bretonne became his first professional victory. He also won the third stage of the Coupe des nations Ville Saguenay, a race he won the previous year as an amateur, and the third stage of Kreiz Breizh Elites, becoming overall winner of the latter.[4]

In both 2011 en 2012 Johan Le Bon emerged as French U23 Time Trial Champion.[5]

In 2013 Le Bon moved to World Tour team FDJ. In the important three-day stage races of West Flanders and De Panne, Le Bon came in fifth and fourth, respectively. He gained his first podium spot with FDJ by finishing second in the Tour of Léon.[6] Later that year, Le Bon debuted in a Grand Tour when he took part in the Giro d'Italia.

In 2014, he participated in the Paris–Roubaix and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad cycling classics. He again took part in the Giro d'Italia, and also finished the Vuelta a España.

His biggest victory for the time being came in 2015, when he won the fifth stage of the Eneco Tour.[7]
