Westley Gough (born 4 May 1988) is a New Zealand professional racing cyclist. In 2011 he won the New Zealand National Road Championships ITT.[1]

Gough was in the New Zealand team that beat Great Britain for gold in the team pursuit at the 2005 World Junior Championships in Austria. He gained a silver medal in the individual pursuit at the 2006 World Junior Championships, and he was part of the quartet that won the silver in the team pursuit behind Australia.

He won a bronze medal in the men's team pursuit event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in China. Gough rode in the team's preliminary events, but made way for Hayden Roulston to join the team in the final. The International Olympic Committee subsequently struck an extra bronze medal for Gough to recognise his contribution to the pursuit team's success.[2] In 2010 Westley Gough won the men's omnium at the New Zealand National Track Championships.

Gough represented New Zealand at the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi in India.

For the 2014 season, Gough will join the Budget Forklifts squad.[3]
