Tour of Utah - Day 1 Report

Stage 1 (Wed, Aug 13th) of the Tour of Utah ( ), considered America's toughest stage race boasting a prize list of $75,000, is in the books for RIDECLEAN. It was a mostly flat and non-selective course and 3 riders were able to hold off the peleton for a 20 second advantage. RIDECLEAN was active in attempting to make a break away group - but the only the original group of 3 were allowed up the road. RIDECLEAN overcame a mechanical and a minor crash to finish without a time loss in the team competition. The team currently holds 3rd place in the best young rider category (under 23) which is a major objective for this race. Today promises to shake things up significantly with 3 mountain passes and over 10,000 ft. of climbing. We hope this results in taking the lead in the best young rider competition.

Here is a pic. of Ryan Trebon trying to "snap the elastic" as Phil Ligget would say.

Stay tuned for further updates and thank you for your continued support!
