Alberto Elli (Giussano, March 9, 1964) is a former Italian road racing cyclist, who wore the yellow jersey for 4 days in the 2000 Tour de France. He is currently a directeur sportif with the Preti Mangimi professional continental team. Elli was called up late for the 2000 Tour de France, and after a group of 12 cyclists stayed away from the others, Elli became a surprise leader, being the second oldest cyclist in the peloton.[1] He kept the yellow jersey until the Pyrenées mountains, where he lost it to Lance Armstrong.[2]

During the 2001 Giro d'Italia, the police found banned substances in Elli's hotel room.[3] In 2005, he was sentenced to six months imprisonment for this.[4]
