Guillaume Boivin (born 25 May 1989 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian racing cyclist, riding for the Cannondale team.[2]

His greatest cycling accomplishment was finishing in a dead heat for the bronze at the World Under-23 Road Race Championships in 2010.[3] He finished 3rd in the 2012 Tro Bro Leon, getting on the podium with his teammate Ryan Roth, who won the race.[4] In October 2014, it was announced that Boivin would leave Cannondale and ride with Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies in 2015.[5] On 29 April 2015, on the first stage of the Tour of the Gila, Boivin was the last man remaining of a breakaway that was caught by eventual solo winner, Rafael Montiel. Boivin took the second place of the mountaintop finish.[6]
