Following the celebrated Tour de France this summer, some of the world's most recognizable professional cycling teams will travel to American soil and race in the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, August 9-14. Organizers announced today that seven of 15 professional teams have confirmed participation in this year's seventh edition of the six-day, Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) 2.1-rated stage race.

Among the three UCI ProTeam squads who have confirmed participation in Utah at "America's Toughest Stage Race" in August include the No.1 ranked team in the world, HTC-Highroad. Three UCI Professional Continental Teams and one UCI Continental Team have also been confirmed.

UCI ProTeams Confirmed: (world rankings as of April 5, 2011)
Team RadioShack, No. 4 team in the world
HTC-Highroad, No. 1 team in the world
BMC Racing Team, No. 7 team in the world

UCI Professional Continental Teams Confirmed:
UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team
Team Type 1-sanofi aventis
Team Spidertech powered by C10

UCI Continental Team, America Tour Confirmed:
Trek LIVESTRONG U23

A total of 15 domestic and international professional cycling teams will compete with eight riders per team. The field of 120 total riders will compete for six days across the mountains, buttes and plateaus of Utah, vying for UCI points, award jerseys and $116,000 in prize money. A final list of professional teams racing at the Tour of Utah will be made in the coming weeks. The Tour of Utah gained special significance this year by gaining an elevated event rating from the international governing body of the sport of cycling (UCI), now one of just three 2.1 or higher world-class stage races in the U.S.

The seventh edition of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah will consist of an opening prologue and five stages. The Prologue will be hosted by Park City on Tuesday, August 9th. Stage races will be hosted the next two days by Ogden and Provo, respectively. On August 12th an individual time trial will be held for the fourth consecutive year at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. This will be followed on Saturday by a circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City and the closing "Queen Stage" on Sunday from Park City to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah continues to be free to all spectators, making professional cycling one of the most unique pro sports in the world today. Official information will be posted at www.tourofutah.com .
