The Ultimate Challenge is a Gran Fondo taking place on August 5th and hosted by the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The ride follows the same Queen Stage route of the Tour of Utah, with approximately 64 miles and 7,600 feet of climbing. This year, the ride will also feature timing on the final climb up Little Cottonwood Canyon. This unique opportunity allows participants to ride the exact Stage 6 route as the pros, as well as offering riders a great spot to watch the finishing sprints of Stage 6 at Snowbird Resort. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t miss your opportunity to experience the high-adrenaline, incredibly challenging Queen Stage route exactly like the pros.
Registration for the event includes nutrition and gear support, a catered post-ride meal and a reserved area at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to watch the professional riders cross the Stage 6 finish line. The final climb along Little Cottonwood Canyon will be timed this year, allowing all participants to compare their times to the pros who race Stage 6 later that day. Last year more than 787 riders—representing 27 states—completed the event. University of Utah Health Care continues for a third year as the presenting sponsor for The Ultimate Challenge. The event is managed by Medalist Sports.
