Tour de Park City

As you likely know Backcountry.com is in the bike biz, (finally!) and as such we struck out to sponsor a few cycling events.

One that we chose locally to sponsor is the soon to be classic of a race, the Tour de Park City. The total purse exceeds $10,000 and it also has a citizen's class that makes the course a tour rather than a race.

From their website:
The Felt Tour de Park City is a single day cycling event that offers cyclists the option of a challenging fully supported USCF sanctioned road race or the option of riding a fully supported casual tour in varying distances.

Those distances are:

Super Century: 170 miles
Century: 108 miles
Half Century: 52 miles

Each route has it's fair amount of vertical but check out the 170 mile course below.

Those two little bumps are the end of the route are what I ride to work and combined give you around 1000 vertical at 6-8% grades. That gives you an idea of the entire course.

Backcountry.com is stoked to be a sponsor. If you've not signed up for the Tour de Park City there are still spots available to register.
