Armand de Las Cuevas (born June 26, 1968 in Troyes, France) is a retired French racing cyclist.

He won prestigious races like the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré and the Clásica de San Sebastián. A time trial specialist, he was considered one of the best time-trialists of the early 1990s, winning many prologues and individual time trials. He planned to break the current Hour record held by Eddy Merckx but never succeeded in this.
