Jérôme Coppel (born 6 August 1986 in Annemasse, Haute-Savoie) is a French road bicycle racer for UCI Pro team IAM Cycling.[1]

He and compatriot Romain Sicard were the focus of a four-page spread in L’Equipe‘s weekly magazine, with the headline Bientôt un crack française ? ("Soon a French champ?"). His presence helped Saur-Sojasun gain its invitation to the 2011 Tour de France, where he finished 14th in the general classification and third in the young rider (white jersey) competition.

Coppel left Saur-Sojasun at the end of the 2012 season, and joined Cofidis for the 2013 season.[2] In December 2014 he was announced as part of the squad for the IAM Cycling team for 2015.[3]
