For the first time in race history, the Tour of Utah will extend beyond the state borders. Evanston, Wyoming will host the stage start for 101.4 miles to Kamas. Evanston and Kamas are the two gateway cities to the High Uintas Wilderness and beautiful Mirror Lake Scenic Byway (State Road 150). Heading south on Mirror Lake Highway, the peloton can expect to confront strong Wyoming prairie winds before beginning the long ascent to the lone KOM of the day at Bald Mountain Pass. At 10,759 feet above sea level, Bald Mountain Pass is the highest point the Tour of Utah has ever reached. The route continues with a long 30-mile descent into the Kamas valley, which has been part of every Tour of Utah since 2006. Spectators will see the peloton twice in Kamas, as the race will pass through the classic western downtown for a circuit through Oakley and Peoa then return to the finish. The riders will get their first taste of the wild west on Woodenshoe Lane in Peoa, with a two-mile stretch of dirt road less than 10 miles from the final sprint in Kamas.
