After a hiatus in 2017, the multiday Tour Of Utah road bike event, known as America's Toughest Stage Race, brings the action back to Main Street in Old Town Park City this summer. Leslie Thatcher brings the news:
The Tour of Utah just announced the route for this year's race and Park City isn't on the list. However, Heber City is. The Tour dates this year are July 31 - August 6. The race will start in Logan, then head to Brigham City and Snowbasin for Stage 2. Stage 3 will feature individual time trials in Big Cottonwood Canyon. South Jordan will host Stage 4. Stage 5 will be in Davis County, starting in Layton City and ending in Bountiful. Stage 6 will be in Heber Valley at Soldier Hollow and end at Snowbird. The final stage will be in Salt Lake City.
Missing out on the large crowds lining Park City’s Main Street this year, the Tour of Utah has pushed its start date back next year, possibly allowing for the final stage to end in Park City once again.
Next year’s tour - the 14th annual - is scheduled for Monday, August 6 through Sunday, August 12th. The dates had to be approved by the International Cycling Union or UCI – the global governing body of cycling which was done this week.
