Stefano Zanini (born January 23, 1969 in Varese, Lombardy) is an Italian former professional road racing cyclist, the leadout man for Liquigas-Bianchi in 2006, after riding for Mapei, Saeco Macchine per Caffè, and Quick-Step.

His palmares include the Milano–Torino of 1995, Amstel Gold Race in 1996, one stage of the 2000 Tour de France and two stages at the Giro d'Italia (1994 and 2001).

He retired at the end of 2007 and took up the role of directeur sportif with the Silence-Lotto team.

His name was on the list of doping tests published by the French Senate in 24 July 2013 that were collected during the 1998 Tour de France and found suspicious for EPO when retested in 2004.[1]
