Tour of Utah
Setting the stage for the Tour.
Snowbird is proud to host the Prologue of the 2019 Tour of Utah. With a brand new course, the Prologue will challenge professional riders and set the stage for the remainder of the week.
The Tour of Utah is a 2.HC-rated UCI stage race, making it one of the top professional cycling events in North America. Showcasing some of the world’s most prestigious teams and cyclists for 7 days in August, this event now attracts worldwide attention as the top international cycling event that follows the Tour de France. Nearly a decade since its opening circuit, the Tour of Utah, today, stands shoulder to shoulder with the most prestigious professional bicycle stage race events as our answer to the greatest cycling challenges the world has to offer.
