With the announcement of the new course traversing the seven stages of the Tour of Utah men’s professional cycling stage race set for August, 2020, CEO and President of the Park City Chamber of Commerce / Convention & Visitors Bureau (Chamber / Bureau), Bill Malone, is pleased to share that Summit County has been selected host venue for three of the race stages – the most the Tour of Utah has devoted to the area in race history.
Nine venues and communities will host the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah stage race on August 3 – 9, 2020. The seven days of competition will start in Herriman City and finish on historic Main Street in Park City. The stage race will visit communities along the Wasatch Front, from Ogden to Payson, tackle the mountain elevations around Snowbird Resort, Canyons Village at Park City Mountain and Woodward Park City.
The Woodward venue is one of Summit County’s newest attractions, having opened December 14, 2019 as a unique action sports and ski resort with indoor and outdoor facilities. “There could not be a better partner for Park City and Summit County than the Tour of Utah stage race,” comments Malone. “To be able to welcome guests to our newest regional attraction, Woodward Park City, for the start of Stage Four, then to have a weekend of cycling action with the start and finish of Stage Six at Canyons Village at Park City Mountain, and the start and finish of Stage Seven on Park City’s historic Main Street is a dream come true and an ideal way to share Summit County’s recreational offerings with Tour of Utah fans.”
Now recognized as the only multi-day race in North America on the UCI ProSeries, the Tour of Utah has been designated among the best HC (hors category) and Class 1 road races around the globe.
“Our designation as a UCI ProSeries race by the international cycling federation is new, but the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah remains a crowd favorite and one of the most successful races in North America,” said John Kimball, managing director of the Tour of Utah as he shared the organization’s host announcement video. “We are fortunate to have welcoming host venues that roll out the red carpet, picturesque course that show beauty and brawn, and a very supportive cycling community that enjoys watching great athletes. We look forward to bringing the Tour of Utah to the state and the world in August.”
