Zubeldia will captain the Trek Factory Racing team
logotrekfrt Veteran rider Haimar Zubeldia will be heading the American formation on the roads of the Tour de San Luis. The Spanish climber was born in 1977. He has participated in the Tour de France ten times, coming in fifth in both 2003 and 2007, while in 2012 he placed sixth.

Haimar Zubeldia: “This will be my first time at the Tour de San Luis. I personally asked the sports directors if I could participate in this race because last year I pulled out from racing early into the season and also because I think that I’ll like Argentina, seeing as they speak my language there. It will be hard in terms of the altitude changes and because the race is seven days long, but it will be a good working foundation for the rest of the season. We’re going in with a young squad and it’s going to be my job to bring some experience to the group, along with Danilo Hondo.”

Trek Factory Racing roster: Eugenio Alafaci (ITA), Julian Arredondo (COL), Fabio Silvestre (ITA), Giacomo Nizzolo (ITA), Danilo Hondo (GER), Haimar Zubeldia (SPA). Sport Director: Alain Gallopin (FRA).
