Daniel Ricardo Díaz (born 7 July 1989) is an Argentine road bicycle racer for Delko-Marseille Provence KTM. In 2012, he came in second place of the general classification of the Tour de San Luis.[1] He was originally third, but Alberto Contador's results were later voided,[2] which also awarded him the fifth stage of that race since he had finished second behind Contador.[3]

In January 2013, Díaz won the overall classification of the Tour de San Luis, besting second-placed Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing Team) by 33 seconds.[4] He earned the leader's jersey after the mountainous stage 5, where he finished second behind his teammate Emmanuel Guevara.[5] He managed to hold on to his lead until the end of the seven-stage race, scoring another second place on the sixth stage finishing atop the Mirador del Sol, 2 seconds behind Alberto Contador (Saxo–Tinkoff), who placed a strong attack in the closing kilometer.[6]
