Felix English (born 11 October 1992) is a professional cyclist from Brighton who rides for Ireland.
English rides on the road and on the track. As a junior, he won five British national titles until he decided in 2010 to represent Ireland, the home country of his parents. In September 2010, he set a new Irish Junior record during a track meeting in Apeldoorn, 1:07.9 over 1000 metres. At the 2010 UEC European Track Championships, English surprisingly defeated Sir Chris Hoy in the first round of the sprint event.
In 2012, English won the fourth stage of the Irish Sea Tour of the North. Twice he started at UCI Road World Championships. In 2012, he became Irish National Criterium Champion. In the same year he started to ride for the UCI Continental Team Rapha Condor-JLT and also for the Irish national Team.
In 2013, English established himself as one of the leading criterium riders in the UK - taking victories in the British Elite Circuit Series and The Milk Race.
In 2014, English showed his potential on the world stage taking 2nd in the first round of the Mitchelton Bay Criteriums and winning the overall sprinters jersey. He then went on to the heavily contested Jayco Herald Sun Tour where he took 4th place in the opening prologue - picking up the young rider leaders jersey - and taking 3rd place in the bunch sprint on stage 3.
