Francesco Chicchi (Liquigas-Doimo) won the first stage of the Tour de San Luis in Argentina. Chicci beat native boy Edgardo Simon (Funvic-Pindamonhanga) and Danilo Napolitano (Katusha).

A break with Jesus Rosendo (Andalucia-Cajasur), Arnols Alcolea (Cuban National Team), Arles Castro (Colombian National Team), Emanuel Guevera (Argentinean NAtional Team) and Luis Mansilla (Chilean National Team) did not succeed to stay away.
