2013 Tour of Utah

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah takes off from the Southern Utah resort town of Brian Head Tuesday for its ninth run on the US calendar. At nearly 3,000 meters of elevation, Brian Head makes the highest elevation start of any race in the US. The elevation and expected heat combine to Bolster the race's claim that it is America's toughest stage race.

For the first time in the race's history, the route will start in Southern Utah and head north toward Salt Lake City. But the biggest change this year for the riders will be the lack of a time trial. Last year's team time trial was a deciding factor in the race, basically knocking two-time champion Levi Leipheimer out of contention for the overall after his team finished last. One again, the Queen stage on the penultimate day finishes at Snowbird Ski Area and Summer resort, but the final stage that climbs the brutal Empire Pass could also decide the overall.
