Sébastien Turgot (born 11 April 1984) is a French road bicycle racer for UCI ProTeam Ag2r-La Mondiale.[1]

His biggest result came when he came in third in the 2008 Paris–Tours after leading in the last 100 metres, but was beaten by Philippe Gilbert of Française des Jeux and Jan Kuyckx of Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner. His third place was not expected by anybody but was a confirmation of his abilities, as demonstrated by his multiple French national track championship titles.

In 2012, Turgot was runner-up in one of the most prestigious races of the cycling calendar, Paris-Roubaix.

Turgot left Team Europcar at the end of the 2013 season, and joined Ag2r-La Mondiale for the 2014 season.[1]
