Giovanni Rossi (7 May 1926 – 17 September 1983) was a Swiss professional road bicycle racer. He was professional from 1949 to 1954 where he won two victories. In the only Tour de France that he participated, Rossi won the first stage and wore the maillot jaune for one stage after his win. His other victory was a stage win in the Tour de Suisse, also in 1951. He also finished second in another stage in that year’s Tour de France and came second in the 1951 Swiss road race championships behind 1950 Tour de France winner Ferdinand "Ferdi" Kübler.

He also competed in the individual and team road race events at the 1948 Summer Olympics.[1]
