Posted by Nancy on August 17, 2010
Once again our majestic state will host an outstanding competition of elite cyclists when the Tour of Utah kicks off at the state capital. The race will continue on Wednesday starting in Ogden and lacing through Snowbasin, Morgan, and Emigration Canyon before finishing up at the University of Utah. Thursdays course will start in Lehi and wind around Utah Lake to end up at the top of Mount Nebo. Fridays’ venue will include the Miller Sports Park and the streets of Park City with the finale coming on Sunday with a 102 mile finish ending at Snowbird Ski Resort. The beautiful scenery and oft times rugged terrain will draw nearly 200 accomplished cyclists many of whom have recently completed the Tour de France including Levi Leipheimer. For those who love the sport of cycling, this is going to be a demanding and dramatic event.
