Gorka González Larrañaga (born September 28, 1977) is a Spanish former professional road bicycle racer. He became professional in 2002 and ended his professional career in 2006. He rode his entire career for the Euskaltel-Euskadi team. González was the only one out of 189 enlisted riders who was not allowed to start in the 2004 Tour de France after failing a health-test prior to the race, due to a high hematocrit value. He was suspended for two weeks. His team Euskadi was not allowed a substitute and started that year's Tour, which included a Team Time Trial, with 8 riders.
