Recognized as “America’s Toughest Stage Race,” the Tour of Utah is a U.S. professional road cycling race that challenges riders with a prologue, three road stages, a criterion and a time trial through some of Utah’s most ambitious and diverse terrain. Founded in 2004 by a family of cycling enthusiasts, the Tour of Utah has been growing in both difficulty and in size since the beginning. 

This year, the Tour of Utah will be coming through six host venues in Utah starting Tuesday, August 9 at 11:00AM to August 14 at 11:00 AM. The host venues are: The Utah Olympic Park, Ogden, Provo, Miller Motorsports Park, Salt Lake City and Snowbird.

August 9 – Prologue: 
The Utah Olympic Park, site of many spectacular events during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, will host the opening Prologue (preliminary time trial) on Tuesday, August 9. 

August 14 – Stage 5 (last stage):
Park City, Utah will host Stage 5 of the competition where racers will start in Park City on August 14th, and end the Race at Snowbird Resort. Stage 5 kicks off from the Newpark Town Center in Kimball Junction. Rocketing into Park City, racers will turn east to race across the ranches and rangeland of Summit County.
