Brice Feillu (born 26 July 1985 in Châteaudun, Eure-et-Loir) is a French road racing cyclist who rides for UCI Professional Continental Team Bretagne-Séché Environnement.[2] He is the younger brother of Romain Feillu, who is also a road racing cyclist. Feillu achieved his greatest success to date with a stage victory on Stage 7 (from Barcelona to Arcalis, Andorra) of the 2009 Tour de France, the highest finish of that year's tour and the longest stage.

Feillu joined Bretagne-Séché Environnement for the 2014 season, after his previous team – Sojasun – folded at the end of the 2013 season.[2]
