Adriano Malori (born 28 January 1988) is an Italian former road racing cyclist, who rode professionally between 2010 and 2017 for the Lampre–Merida and Movistar Team squads.
Malori was the lanterne rouge of the 2010 Tour de France, finishing almost four and a half hours behind winner Andy Schleck (Leopard Trek).
Having ridden for the Lampre–Merida squad since August 2009, Malori left the team at the end of the 2013 season to join the Movistar Team. He won the final time trial of the 2014 Vuelta a España.
On 23 January 2016, at the Tour de San Luis, Malori suffered a severe crash as he was leading the peloton. His front wheel was caught in a crack on the road and he flew over his bike, crashing head-first. He was put in an induced coma. Three days later, he was moved to a special clinic in Buenos Aires. Reports suggested that doctors had found the head trauma not to be a result, but rather the cause of the crash, citing a possible aneurysm. However, the team discredited them soon afterward, saying a road defect was the cause of the crash. In August, Malori announced that he would make his return to racing the following month at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal.
Malori announced his retirement from professional cycling on 10 July 2017, as a result of the injury.
