Tour Of Utah: Prologue Photo Gallery

 

The 2011 edition of the Larry H. Miller Tour Of Utah kicked off Tuesday with an uphill prologue at the Utah Olympic Park. At 2 km it wasn't long or particularly steep with only 100 meters elevation gain. The five minute test ran up the access road of the Olympic ski jump.

Starting number 102, Sergio Henao Montoya (Gobernacion De Antioquia-Indeportes) set the fastest time of 4'05” which placed the Columbian rider in the leader's jersey for Wednesday's stage one in Ogden. Fransisco Mancebo (Realcyclist) and Henao's teammate Oscar Sevilla rounded out the podium.

Tejay Van Garderen took the lead in the Best Young Rider's classification after the HTC-Highroad rider placed fourth. Tom Danielson (Garmin-Cervelo) and Levi Leipheimer (Radioshack) round out the top five. The best Utah rider jersey sits on the shoulders of Salt Lake City native Tyler Wren (Jamis-Sutter Home).

Just twelve seconds separates the top ten riders, and the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah continues Wednesday in Ogden. The circuit race includes three ascents of the North Ogden Divide. The flat finish in Ogden may mean the winner will come from a small group sprint.
