Fabio Felline (born March 29, 1990 in Turin) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer for UCI ProTeam Trek Factory Racing.[2]

In 2010, Felline took the start of his first Tour de France for Footon-Servetto-Fuji. He was the youngest competitor in that year's Tour.[3] In 2012, Felline bagged a semi-classic in Italia, the Giro dell'Appennino. He got the best of the sprint of a group of 20 riders who survived several climbs disseminated on the parcours.[4]

After two seasons with Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela, Felline left the team at the end of the 2013 season, to join Trek Factory Racing.[2]
