Tour de San Luis 2013
Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) returns to the Tour de San Luis (January 21-27) and headlines the race's most competitive ever line-up. The Spanish climber will again use the Argentine stage race as his season opener but with three potential sprint stages, three up-hill finishes, and a time-trial the race offers plenty of variety for the world-class field.
Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) and Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) also make season debuts south of the equator, and both riders will do so with new teams. The week-long stage race also sees Peter Sagan, Joaquim Rodriguez, Tejay van Garderen, Thor Hushovd, and Jurgen Van den Broeck line-up.
