Wilfried Nelissen (Tongeren, 5 May 1970) is a former Belgium road racing cyclist, known best as a sprinter. Nelissen had to stop his promising career in 1998 because of a knee injury that he got in 1996 after falling down during Gent–Wevelgem. He was involved in an infamous crash at the end of stage 1 of the 1994 Tour de France, when he collided spectacularly with a policeman. The incident also involved French rider Laurent Jalabert.

He was one of the fastest sprinters of his generation.
