The Tour of Utah returns to Ogden for a sixth time for the start of Stage 4 presented by Workers Compensation Fund. Known as the “Crossroads of the West,” Ogden previously hosted the Tour in 2012 with two stages. The start of the 104.7-mile stage will take place on Historic 25th Street in downtown Ogden. The route travels through the Ogden Valley toward the North Ogden Divide for the first of two ascents. The first of three KOMs will be on the slopes of the North Ogden Divide, a tough five-kilometer climb with an average 10-percent gradient. The race circumnavigates Pineview Reservoir as it passes under the ski slopes of Snowbasin and Wolf Mountain. The race then descends Ogden Canyon for another trip though the city of Ogden and a second climb up North Ogden Divide. The first big shakeup in the General Classification could happen on the slopes of the first mountaintop finish of the week at Powder Mountain, one of the toughest climbs in Utah. This new addition to the Tour ascends over 3,000 feet in just six miles. And to make it even tougher, the road lacks switchbacks, forcing riders to stare down this beast of a climb with every crank of their pedals.
