Oliver Zaugg (born 9 May 1981) is a Swiss professional road bicycle racer for UCI ProTeam Team Tinkoff-Saxo.[1] He has previously ridden for Saunier Duval-Prodir, Gerolsteiner, Liquigas and Leopard Trek.

Zaugg won his first major race in 2011, the Giro di Lombardia.[2] He attacked on the Villa Vergano climb with 10 kilometers to go, soloing on to victory. He was chased relentlessly by the leading group, but the chasers could not get to him. He crossed the finish line in Lecco with an advantage of 15 seconds over his nearest rival, Daniel Martin of Garmin-Cervélo.[3] In 2012, he tried to defend his title at the Giro di Lombardia and put in a great performance, finishing in the chase group in eighth position as Joaquim Rodriguez (Team Katusha) claimed the victory.[4]

Zaugg left RadioShack-Nissan at the end of the 2012 season, and signed with Team Saxo-Tinkoff for the 2013 season.[1]
