The delete button has apparently been punched on the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, sending reverberations across the North American racing scene for the coming year. The UCI updated its road calendar twice this month with event postponements and cancellations, and has removed the Tour of Utah from the 2021 schedule.

Tour of Utah, which has been a staple of the US stage racing scene for men’s teams since its inception in 2004, was scheduled to take place July 26 to August 1 this year and remains on USA Cycling's Pro Road Tour schedule on those dates. In early March, the dates of the Tour of Utah on the UCI calendar were reduced to just three days, from July 30 to August 1, leading to massive uncertainties about the format.
