Tour of Utah Preview: Rematch between Danielson and Horner

Since joining the ranks of the UCI races in 2010 as 2.1 event, the Tour of Utah has grown steadily in importance and prestige, culminating with its jump to 2.HC status this year. The seven-day race, which starts Sunday in Logan, will once again challenge riders with one of the toughest routes on the US calendar, setting up an expected rematch between Tom Danielson (Cannondale-Garmin), winner of the past two editions, and Chris Horner (Airgas-Safeway), runner-up the past two years.
