Yesterday, Tour of Utah’s organizers unveiled the official route of the competition. The 2017 version of this UCI-sanctioned event is planned to cover 600 miles and around 36,530 feet of elevation part. The whole competition will last seven days. Its starting date will be on July 31, 2017.


Three from the total of seven stages will include mountaintop stage finishes and also an individual uphill time trial.

This year’s Tour of Utah brings back the individual time trial and the circuit race at the Capitol, which will both challenge the professional athletes and energize our fans.” – Jenn Andrs, the executive director of the Larry H.
