Vladimir Nikolayevich Gusev (Russian: Владимир Николаевич Гусев, born 4 July 1982) is a Russian professional road racing cyclist.[1] Gusev has been a professional since 2004, spending two years each at Team CSC and Discovery Channel before moving to Astana in 2008. On 25 July 2008 team Astana fired Gusev for showing "abnormal" values during an internal doping check,[2] a decision the Court of Arbitration for Sport found to be unjust in a ruling the following June.[3]

At the 2006 Paris–Roubaix, Gusev finished fourth but was later one of three riders disqualified by the race jury for illegally riding though a closed level-crossing.

Gusev joined Team Katusha in 2010 after not riding for a trade team since his dismissal from Astana.[4]
