Omer Huyse (22 August 1898 in Kortrijk – 2 March 1985 in Luigne) was a Belgian professional road bicycle racer. In 1924, he won stage five of the 1924 Tour de France. In that year, the cyclists were divided in three classes: the first class for top cyclists, the second class for lesser cyclists, and the touriste-routier class for semi-amateur cyclists. Huyse was put in the second class cyclists, so his stage victory was extra special.
