Rafaâ Chtioui (born 26 January 1986 in Tunisia) is a Tunisian road bicycle racer who rides for UCI Continental team Skydive Dubai Pro Cycling Team–Al Ahli Club.[1]

As a junior in 2004, Chtioui came second in the junior road race world championships. He was beaten by Roman Kreuziger in a two-man sprint after Chtioui established a breakaway on the final descent of the race.[2]

Chtioui represented his country at the 2008 Summer Olympics in the Road Race, ultimately finishing in 87th place.[3]

From 2014, Chtioui competed for UCI Continental squad Skydive Dubai Pro Cycling. That year he won a stage and the overall victory at the Jelajah Malaysia, as well as winning the Tunisian national road race championships. In 2015, he won his biggest victories to date by winning the general classification as well as the first and second stages of the La Tropicale Amissa Bongo, a UCI 2.1-ranked race.[4]
