Davide Martinelli (born 31 May 1993) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer riding for UCI WorldTeam Quick-Step Floors.

Martinelli made his debut in an Etixx–Quick-Step jersey in the 2016 Tour Down Under. On 24 February 2016, he scored a surprise first professional win in stage 2 of the Tour La Provence. He was the lead out man for Fernando Gaviria in the finale, but a crash split the peloton which allowed a chance for him to cross the line ahead of Gaviria. His maiden UCI World Tour win came on 12 July 2016 in the first stage of the Tour de Pologne. He attacked within the final kilometre, taking the victory ahead of Gaviria.[4]

He was named in the start list for the 2017 Giro d'Italia.[5]
