Sylvain Georges (born 1 May 1984) is a professional French racing cyclist who last rode for Ag2r–La Mondiale. He was born in Beaumont, Puy-de-Dôme, France.[1] On 18 May 2012, Georges won his first pro tour stage on the 6th stage of the Tour of California, where he broke away with six other riders at the start of a mountain stage leading to Big Bear Lake and rode solo for the last 50 kilometers to take the win as the peloton was in sight.[2]

In May 2013 Georges withdrew from the Giro D'Italia after testing positive for Heptaminol.[3] He was later sacked by his team.[4]
