Carlos Barredo Llamazales (born 5 June 1981, in Oviedo, Asturias) is a Spanish former road racing cyclist, who competed as a professional between 2004 and 2012.

Barredo was suspended by Rabobank on 18 October 2012 after the UCI opened proceedings for apparent violations of the Anti-Doping Rules on the basis of the information provided by the blood profile in his biological passport. In December of that year, he told Spanish newspaper El Pais that he was retiring from cycling and that he was starting a new job in a café in Madrid. UCI gave him a two-year sanction as a result of abnormalities in his biological passport, and he was disqualified from 26 October 2007 to 24 September 2011.
