Twelve Teams Confirmed for Tour of Utah

March 9, 2016

SALT LAKE CITY – Twelve of the world’s best international and domestic men’s professional cycling teams have accepted invitations to compete at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, Aug. 1-7, 2016. Four of these squads are UCI WorldTour teams, having finished in the Top 12 at last year’s Tour de France.

Two teams are racing the Tour of Utah for the first time, including Switzerland’s IAM Cycling from the WorldTour ranks. Of the 10 men’s teams returning to battle at “America’s Toughest Stage Race™,” these teams have accounted for 18 stage wins at the Tour of Utah since 2011, the year the Tour became sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). Four additional teams will be announced later this spring, with race rosters for Utah anticipated in July.

“It’s an honor to have such a prestigious field of teams confirmed early in the year for the Tour of Utah. We hear so much positive feedback from teams around the world about the welcoming host venues, stunning scenery and competitive courses in Utah. We look forward to announcing the final field of 16 competitive teams for a great week of racing in August,” said Jenn Andrs, executive director of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.
