Tour Of Utah Team Presentation


The Tour Of Utah kicked off last night with the official team presentations. The event was held in Park City at the foot of the hill containing the Olympic Village and Tuesday's opening prologue that runs the course of the Bob Sled run. A Nice open plaza in the shopping district saw the majority of riders introduced to a decent sized and enthusiastic crowd. There were some missing riders as a few riders are still making their way here from various races around the world. Most were missing due to The Tour Of Elk Grove which did not finish until within a few hours of the presentation.
