Claude Criquielion (born January 11, 1957 in Lessinesmarker, Hainautmarker) is a former Belgianmarker professional road bicycle racer who raced between 1979 and 1990. In 1984, Criquielion became the world road race champion in Barcelona, Spainmarker on a gruelling course. He had five top-ten finishes in the Tour de France.

Criquielion was well placed to win a medal in the 1988 championship in Belgium. However, he crashed in sight of the line when another competitor, Steve Bauer of Canadamarker, clashed with him. The third rider, Maurizio Fondriest, went on to win instead of taking the bronze medal. Bauer was disqualified and Criquielion sued Bauer for assault, asking for $1.5 million in damages in a case that lasted more than three years before the judge ruled in Bauer's favor.

Criquielion was directeur sportif of the team from 2000 to 2004. His son, Mathieu Criquielion, turned professional for the Landbouwkrediet-Colnago team in 2005; Claude Criquielion became the team's manager.
