Salt Lake City will return for a sixth year as the host city for the Tour of Utah. Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker has declared 2013 as "Year of the Bike" and hosting a stage in the Tour is one of many planned events. Expanding and improving the "bikeability" of Salt Lake City is just one of the major aspects of Mayor Becker's Livability Agenda, a plan aimed at keeping Salt Lake City one of the best places to live, eat, work, play and do business. Last year Salt Lake City hosted two stage finish lines.

Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the friendliness of a small, western city, Salt Lake City is an ideal location for travel. A beautiful, safe, and vibrant city, Salt Lake combines unparalleled access to natural recreation, a bustling economy, dynamic nightlife, remarkable history, warm hospitality, and Utah's Greatest Snow on Earth.™

From the heart of the city to the edge of the wilderness, Salt Lake has a host of options for you to set up a perfect base camp for your visit to Salt Lake. Nestled at the base of the Wasatch Range, you are minutes from the best skiing in North America. At the heart of downtown you can browse museums and galleries, sample endless dining and shopping options, check out an NBA game, attend a Broadway musical, visit the zoo and catch a symphony or planetarium cosmic light show. Enjoy it all at the "Crossroads of the West."

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is one of only four UCI-sanctioned, multi-stage, American pro cycling events in 2013. Showcasing some of the world's most prestigious teams and cyclists for six days in August, this event now attracts worldwide attention as the top international cycling event that follows the Tour de France. Nearly a decade since its opening circuit, the Tour of Utah today stands shoulder to shoulder with the most prestigious, professional bicycle stage race events as our answer to the greatest cycling challenges the world has to offer.

Bicycle racing offers its fans more opportunity to get? close to the action than does any other professional sport. Accessibility to athletes along with a "free admission" model puts riders and spectators eyeball to eyeball before, during and after the event. Recognizing this unique opportunity, the Larry? H. Miller Group of Companies has committed itself, for nearly a decade, to underwriting the Tour of Utah with significant financial and human resources. Thanks to a conservative, professional approach steeped in decades of major league sports management experience, combined with relationships throughout the sporting world, the Miller organization has supported the growth of an unparalleled athletic spectacle? that showcases the best of Utah's diverse natural beauty,? and the very best side of its people and culture.

Without a doubt, the Tour of Utah has achieved world-class status. Our event not only represents a forum for showcasing athletic perfection, but communicates a broader message: how individual attention to personal health and physical activity at every age will lead to a stronger, healthier society.
