Raymond Louviot (Granges, Switzerland, 17 December 1908 — Dunkerque, 14 May 1969) was a French professional road bicycle racer. He was the grandfather of cyclist Philippe Louviot.

He became a team manager after retirement. The British cyclist, Brian Robinson, accuses a commercial tie-up between Louviot and Miguel Poblet a rival in another team, for denying him first place in the 1957 Milan – San Remo. Robinson said:

My manager, Raymond Louviot, had a tie-up in the cycle trade with Poblet. He told me that if Poblet was anywhere near me it was my job to get him over the line first. I buggered off up a hill, then my manager came up and told me 'Remember what I told you.' Poblet won, I was third, that is my biggest regret. If I had won I would have been made for life.[1][2]
