Thalita de Jong (born 6 November 1993) is a Dutch racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI Women's Continental Team Chevalmeire Cycling Team.[1] She competed in the 2013 UCI women's team time trial in Florence.[2] She won gold at the 2016 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Zolder, Belgium.[3]

After five years with Rabo–Liv, in August 2016 Lares–Waowdeals announced that de Jong would join them for the 2017 season, leading the team on the road and in cyclo-cross.[4] De Jong suffered a 2017 cyclocross season ending injury, falling at the Grand Prix Adri van der Poel. Medical issues plagued her 2017 road season, by the end of the year, de Jong signed with the former Sport Vlaanderen–Guill D'or as it became an international team in 2018.[5][6]

She is the older sister of fellow professional cyclist, Demi de Jong.
