The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is one of only five UCI-sanctioned, multi-stage, North American pro cycling events in 2018. Showcasing some of the world’s most prestigious teams and cyclists for seven days in August, this event now attracts worldwide attention as the top international cycling event that follows the Tour de France. Nearly a decade since its opening circuit, the Tour of Utah, today, stands shoulder to shoulder with the most prestigious professional bicycle stage race events as our answer to the greatest cycling challenges the world has to offer.
Park City is back! After a one-year hiatus, the final day is back in Park City with a familiar course. The route will travel through the towns of Summit County. The riders are welcomed into the ranch with a nasty short Category 3 climb that has segments of sustained 15% grades. After a tough segment through Midway, it’s a race to the bottom of Pine Canyon Road, better known as Empire Pass. In all previous visits to Empire Pass, the racers had to battle the road conditions as well as the 10-20% grades. Since the race last raced up Empire Pass, the road has been repaved. Gone is the rough road base of years past. Riders will welcome the fresh smooth asphalt up to Empire Pass. Will this change the outcome of the race? Come early and get your viewing spot on Upper Main Street in Park City for the exciting finish.
