Matteo Priamo (born 20 March 1982 in Castelfranco Veneto) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer, previously of UCI Professional Continental team CSF Group–Navigare.
Priamo's CSF Group–Navigare teammate Emanuele Sella, who had won three stages and the mountains classification at the 2008 Giro d'Italia, tested positive for methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (better known as Mircera, an erythropoietin derivative) at an out-of-competition control run by the UCI. After confessing to his doping he named Priamo as his supplier. Though the Italian National Anti-Doping tribunal originally exonerated Priamo, the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled, upon appeal by the Italian National Olympic Committee, that he should be suspended for four years.
