Morgan Kneisky (born 31 August 1987) is a French track and road racing cyclist. He is a member of the Roubaix-Lille Métropole team, and a four-time World Track Cycling Champion.


Morgan Kneisky began cycling as a youngster, when he joined the Amicale Cycliste Bisontine. In 2008, he joined the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation, a team in the top national division. That year, he won the Tour de Moselle.[1] In 2009, Kneisky participated in his first Track Cycling World Championships, and came away with the Scratch race title. He has subsequently won two more world titles in the Madison at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships.

Kneisky signed with the British-based Team Raleigh for the 2014 season.[2] After his contract with the team was not renewed for 2017, in December 2016 it was announced that Kneisky would join the Armée de Terre team for 2017.[3] Following the disbanding of Armée de Terre at the end of 2017[4], Kneisky rejoined Roubaix-Lille Métropole.[5]
