Antoine Fauré (24 December 1883 – 9 September 1954)[1] was a French road bicycle racer, who was declared winner of a stage in the 1904 Tour de France.

Fauré rode the first three stages of the 1904 Tour de France, where he finished 10th, 5th and 13th, and did not start the fourth stage. Months after this Tour finished, many cyclists were disqualified, and Fauré's results were upgraded to 6th, 1st and 7th; Fauré was therefore declared winner of the second stage.[2] After that Tour, he rode the Tour de France three times in 1909 and 1912. He only finished in 1909, when he became 37th.[3]
