Andrei Kivilev (September 20 1973-March 12 2003) was a professional cyclist from Kazakhstan. In 2001 he was 4th in the Tour de France, thanks to being in a leading group that took 35 minutes in a flat stage. In the same year he won the Route du Sud and a stage in the Dauphiné Libéré.
On March 11 2003 during a stage of Paris-Nice Kivilev fell. He broke his skull and two ribs and fell into a coma. The next day he died in a hospital in Saint-Étienne. A few days later his friend and fellow countryman Alexandre Vinokourov won Paris‑Nice.
