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. He was originally third, but Alberto Contador's results were later voided, which also awarded him the fifth stage of that race since he had finished second behind Contador.
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. He earned the leader's jersey after the mountainous stage 5, where he finished second behind his teammate Emmanuel Guevara. 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.
