Enjoy the Tour of Utah in Cool, Comfortable Park City
Tour of Utah - August 5-11, 2013
Park City will play host to two stages of the 2013 Tour of Utah. The tour will pass through Park City's Historic District with a sprint and a climb up and over Guardsman Pass. In addition, Park City's Historic Main Street will serve as the Start and Finish for the challenging and final Stage 6 which includes two epic climbs up and over Wolf Creek Ranch and up and over Guardsman Pass followed by a speedy descent into Historic Park City. The champion of the 2013 Tour of Utah will be crowned on Historic Main Street following the race.
Spanning almost the entire length of the state, the Tour of Utah will begin in southern red rock country near world-famous Bryce Canyon National Park. It will finish among the alpine peaks of the Wasatch Front in northern Utah, ending again on Main Street in Park City, Utah.

Expect huge crowds to pack Historic Main Street and see the champion crowned for the 2013 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah for the grand finale.
In addition to being the best spot to watch all of the cycling action, Historic Main Street will become a festival for a day with kids' activities, video boards, beer gardens, dining decks, public viewing areas, the Park Silly Sunday Market, Tour of Utah Expo and Autograph Alley, and much more. Public parking will be limited in the Historic District so plan to ride your bike, take the free Park City Transit System to the Main Street Transit Center, or utilize satellite parking lots at Canyons Resort, Park City High School and Richardson Flats Park-n-Ride. Free shuttles will be available at each of these parking lots with direct access to the Main Street Transit Center.
