Dubbed as America’s toughest stage race, the Tour of Utah is a challenging road bike race which has been held annually since 2004. Participants in the Tour of Utah will be forced to endure tumultuous climbs and struggle over treacherous terrain as they ride around the beautiful and challenging Utah countryside in hopes of winning a portion of the $75,000 prize money up for grabs. Since garnering UCI classification, the Tour of Utah has been open for ProTeams to register and in 2012, six ProTeams entered the Tour of Utah and were among the 17 cycling teams competing in the race.
