Tour of Utah: Stage 6 Main Street
Stage 6 presented by Utah Sports Commission brings back the overall finish to Park City on Sunday, Aug. 18. It is the 10th year Park City has served as a host city, and seventh time it will host the final stage of the Tour. No need to make changes to a proven course first introduced in 2012, which features 78.2 miles (125.9 km) and 10,000 feet of climbing.
The route will pass down Browns Canyon and encounter a Sprint line in the town of Kamas. Then an aspen tree-lined, 2.1-mile KOM follows in the private community of Wolf Creek Ranch, a Category 2 climb that reaches a maximum pitch of 22 percent. A technical descent into Wasatch County will allow the riders to regroup through Heber City before the final sprint line in Midway. Then an all-out assault for the climbers will take place on the six-mile climb along Pine Canyon Road, with pitches from 10-20 percent gradient. The Hors Category summit of Empire Pass is the final KOM and the highest point of the race for the week at 9,700 feet above sea level. A blistering descent down Mine Road leads to the finish in front of historically massive crowds along Upper Main Street in Park City.
