While riding for Jamis-Hagens Berman in 2013, he won a mountaintop finish on Stage 2 of the Tour of California, twelve seconds ahead of eventual overall winner, Tejay van Garderen of BMC Racing Team. He subsequently finished third overall in the Tour, and briefly wore the leader's jersey before van Garderen claimed it.
In September 2013, it was announced that Acevedo would move to the Omega Pharma-Quick Step squad for the 2014 season. However, a month later, Acevedo was said to have broken a "verbal agreement" with Omega Pharma-Quick Step, with the intention to join Garmin-Sharp instead.
