BMC's Brent Bookwalter took his first win since 2015, getting the better of Sepp Kuss (Rally Cycling) and late attacker James Piccoli (Elevate-KHS) in the Snowbasin Resort finale on stage 2 of the Tour of Utah.

Kuss will now wear the leader's yellow jersey in stage 3 time trial, tied on time with Bookwalter and Piccoli and is confident of holding onto his lead.

Stage 2 of the Tour of Utah was animated by a three-man breakaway of BMC's Joey Rosskopf, Marco Canola (Nippo-Vini Fantini) and Oscar Clark (Holowesko-Citadel). The peloton let the breakaway enjoy a lead over five minutes before the chase started in earnest to set up the catch.
