Guido Messina (born 4 January 1931) was an Italian road and track cyclist. On track he won five world titles in the individual 4000 m pursuit between 1948 and 1956, and a gold medal with the Italian team at the 1952 Olympics (individual pursuit became an Olympic event only in 1964, when Messina retired from cycling). Between 1954 and 1963 he rode professionally and won the first stage of the 1955 Giro d'Italia.[1][2]
