Rider profile: Joaquim Rodriguez
A late bloomer, Rodriguez is the classic little man who feels most at home when he's going uphill. He finished second in the 2012 Giro and third in La Vuelta that year, proving that he has the ability to compete in Grand Tours, if not make it to the top step of the podium.
Rodriguez won't win the 2013 Tour but he should be a strong contender in the King of the Mountains category and a good bet for a top-six finish.
