Peter Luttenberger (born 13 December 1972) is an Austrian professional road bicycle racer. He finished fifth in the General classification of the 1996 Tour de France, but he never again managed to live up to the promise of that result, with a position as 13 in 1997 and 2003 as the best later results. If those accused of doping were removed from the 1996 Tour results, Luttenberger would have been awarded the win. He was born in Bad Radkersburg. He won the Austrian National Road Race Championships in 1993.[1] He also competed at the 1992 Summer Olympics and the 1996 Summer Olympics.[2]
