Francesco Filippo "Frank" Bizzoni (May 7, 1875 – December 25, 1926) was an Italian track cyclist who competed in the 1904 Summer Olympics.[1]

He was born in Lodi, Lombardy and died in the Bronx, New York.

In 1904 he was eliminated in the semi-final of the quarter mile competition.

Bizzoni is the only known Italian competitor at the St. Louis Games in 1904. But in all records he is listed as an American cyclist. As he was still an Italian citizen in 1904 (he became a naturalized American citizen in 1917), Italy competed at all the modern Olympic Games. Italy is one of only six nations who have competed at all the Games since 1896.
