San Luiz
Oman

Critérium Int. is also a very good Tour preparation, I'm sure many contenders will show up there to race, and to do a Tour recon.

I'm just wondering: If contador wins basque, does he have the record of wins there?

It would be his 3th win.

No

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_of_the_Basque_Country

José Antonio González won it 4 times

And Tony Rominger and Sean kelly 3 times

He just needs to win it in 2014 and 2015 as well

Most likely will have a stage that's similar to the last two stages in Corsica.

So he just needs to ride it 3 more times to get the record. Alright, easy
