The Tour of Utah returns to Downtown Salt Lake City with a slightly new course. The start/finish line has moved from the Capital to Main Street with an amazing backdrop of the Salt Lake City skyline. The riders will tackle 10 laps of the 6.8-mile downtown course. The course will follow Main Street up to 500 North and through the old finish line from 2016 where Michael Woods won in dramatic fashion. The race will follow the traditional route through Bonneville Parkway to 11th Ave and down Virginia Ave through the University of Utah to South Temple, where the riders will turn up State Street to North Temple and to the uphill finish on Main Street. A Rouleur-type sprinter, the likes of Michael Mathews, Janier Avevado and Marco Canola are the favorites for the Salt Lake City stage.
