Ján Svorada (born 28 August 1968 in Trenčín) is a retired Slovak and Czech road racing cyclist.

He was born in Czechoslovakia; when that country split up in 1993, he raced for Slovakia until 1996, when he started racing for the Czech Republic.

When Svorada won Stage 2 of the 1998 Tour de France he became a rarity in professional cycling because at that point he became a Tour de France stage winner who won at least one stage with two different nationalities. His first stage win at the Tour de France (Stage 7 in 1994) was obtained as a Slovak cyclist, and later he won also a stage in 1998 as a Czech rider.

He competed for the Czech Republic at the 1996 Summer Olympics, the 2000 Summer Olympics, and the 2004 Summer Olympics.[1]
