Diaz wins Tour of San Luis



Home racer Ricardo Diaz won the Tour of San Luis crown on Sunday after Italy's Mattia Gavazzi of the Androni team won the final stage.

Gavazzi won the 154.7km ride from San Luis to Juana Koslay in 3hr 25min 48sec, edging out Slovakia's Peter Sagan (Cannondale) and Spaniard Francisco Ventoso (Movistar) in a sprint finish.

The 23-year-old Diaz, racing for San Luis Somos Todos, landed the biggest title of his career to date, having set up his success with barnstorming showings in the fifth and sixth stages.

Diaz won in a total time of 24hr 3min 16sec after 1 008.8km of racing with US hope Tejay Van Garderen of BMC second, 33sec behind, and Brazilian Alex Diniz of Funvic third at 39sec, forcing two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff) to settle for fourth, 62sec off the pace.
