Rory Sutherland (born 8 February 1982)[1] is a professional road bicycle racer from Canberra, Australia, riding for UCI ProTeam Movistar Team. In 2007, he won stages 2 and 3 of the Redlands Bicycle Classic, and also finished 2nd in the Australian National Time Trial Championships.[2]

Sutherland began racing competitively at the age of 14, and rode in Europe with the Rabobank Team from 2001 to 2005. He tested positive for Clomiphene, which according to some medical experts is not a performance-enhancing drug although it is on the WADA's banned substance list. In 2006 Sutherland was given a 9-month conditional suspension by the Belgian Cycling Federation, with whom he holds a racing licence.[3] He was named in the start list for the 2015 Vuelta a España.[4]
