Snowbird is proud to host the Queen Stage of the 2014 Tour of Utah. Just like the road to Alpe-d’Huez in the Tour de France, Little Cottonwood Canyon will challenge the competitors with close to 3,000 feet of elevation gain over 6.5 miles (9.2% average gradient).
Deemed "America's Toughest Stage Race," the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is a weeklong, professional stage race for the best cycling teams in the world. Now in its tenth year of racing, the 2014 Tour of Utah will include some of the state’s most beautiful and challenging terrain, from the lush forests and red rock spires in the south to the urban corridor and epic peaks along Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in the north.
A total of 17 professional teams accepted invitations to compete in the 2012 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. A record seven of those teams also competed at the 99th Tour de France. Close to 130 athletes competed on these teams, representing 23 countries. Athletes compete for UCI points, six different award jerseys and close to $129,000 in prize money.
The event is free for all spectators.
