Jasper Philipsen (born 2 March 1998) is a Belgian professional cyclist, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Alpecin–Fenix.[5][6]

In July 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Tour de France.[7] In October 2020, he was named in the startlist for the 2020 Vuelta a España,[8] where he won stage 15. He participated in his second Tour de France in 2021 and while he did not win any stages he had many promising results including finishing on the stage podium a half dozen times. He rode in the 2021 Vuelta a España where he won two stages.[9] He also wore the points classification jersey on several stages, being involved in a battle with Fabio Jakobsen for the jersey, before he decided it had been a successful race and chose to abandon about halfway through due to a mild fever.[10]
