Stage Overview:

The Prologue returns—this time in St George. It will be a hot and hard affair. At 5K, the prologue will be hard and fast. The course is an out and back with a mellow climb for the first 2K and a short downhill to the turnaround. After a short climb out of the turnaround it will be a fast straight downhill to the finish. The time gaps will be small but it will set the stage for a great week of racing.
