Stages of the Tour of Utah

Presenting some past favorites, as well as new destinations, this year’s Tour features the following stages. As has been the case in previous years, the Tour includes only road sections and will not involve any individual or team time-trial events.

  1.  Monday, August 4th: Cedar City. The Pre-Race Presentation as well as the start of the race will take place, again, in Southern Utah
  2. Tuesday, August 5: Panguitch – Torrey. This stage follows the picturesque National Historic District of Utah, featuring Utah’s legendary red-rock formations.
  3. Wednesday, August 6: Lehi – Miller Motorsports Park. From the edge of Utah Valley, through the Salt Flats, this stage ends near the lovely Oquirrh Mountains.
  4.  Thursday, August 7: Ogden – Powder Mountain.  Expanding the race’s breadth, this leg meanders through some of Utah’s prime ski territory.
  5. Friday, August 8: Evanston, WY – Kamas. For the first time ever, the Tour will delve through the Uintah Mountains on Mirror Lake Highway.
  6.  Saturday, August 9: Salt Lake City – Snowbird Ski Resort. For the seventh year in a row the Salt Lake to Snowbird route will challenge cyclists, but is being combined to form a new route. The new version of the stage crosses 10,000 vertical feet of Wasatch Mountains.
