August 01, 2016 (Cedar City, UT) – Silber Pro Cycling’s Kris Dahl (Canada) sprinted to victory in front of a fast-charging peloton to take the overall lead at the 2016 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. Dahl outkicked Axeon Hagens Berman’s Colin Joyce (USA) and BMC Racing Team’s Rick Zabel (Germany), who finished second and third respectively, for the Stage 1 presented by Workers Compensation Fund finish in Cedar City. Dahl claimed the first Larry H. Miller Group of Companies Overall Leader jersey of the 2016 Tour of Utah.

“For the Silber Pro Team, it’s an amazing victory today,” Dahl said, whose Continental team is making its inaugural appearance in Utah. “To end up in yellow our first year at the Tour of Utah, that’s really special. Everybody can expect the Silber Team to be very active the rest of this race.”

Dahl surprised the disorganized peloton by opening his sprint early along the downtown circuits in Cedar City to claim the biggest victory of his career. “Coming into the finish it was pretty hectic. There were all sorts of things happening. There were attacks and lead out trains that were overtaken. I found myself with one (kilometer) to go on the outside of the group. I started early and just hung on for the win.”

This year’s Tour of Utah, Aug. 1-7, features 705 miles of racing, the third time in its 12-year history that the event has raced 700 miles or more. The course offers a total of 52,825 feet of vertical gain for the week, solidifying the event as “America’s Toughest Stage Race”. The UCI 2.HC-rated stage race began in Zion Canyon Village today with 120 riders on 16 professional teams, representing 25 countries.

Stage 1 presented by Workers Compensation Fund began in the shadows of the jagged spires of The Watchman, one of the most prominent peaks in Zion National Park. This year’s Tour coincides with the National Park Service Centennial, providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to promote the Centennial goal of connecting with and creating the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. Through the park, cyclists proceeded as a neutral ride following the pace car, providing a cycling demonstration to highlight alternative, non-motorized ways to enjoy the park and to promote exercise and outdoor recreation.

“The scenery was beautiful. I come from the East Coast and we do not have anything like that. I’d like to thank the Tour of Utah and the National Parks for giving us the opportunity to ride here. A lot of riders come from Europe and will take this memory back with them,” said Cannondale-Drapac Pro Cycling’s Ben King (USA), who raced in six previous editions of the Tour of Utah. King was voted America First Credit Union Fan Favorite for Stage 1, in the category of Best Ambassador (Statesman).

Racing began after the peloton exited the East Entrance to the park. Four riders escaped 10 kilometers into the 84-mile stage and managed to get a five-minute gap on the climb to the first Utah Office of Tourism King of the Mountain (KOM) climb of the day at Duck Creek. The gap started to come down on the second KOM of the day at Bristlecone, where the riders crested at 9,600 feet above sea level near Cedar Breaks National Monument. The peloton caught the last two riders of the breakaway in the second of the three finishing circuits in Cedar City, cheered on by enthusiastic crowds.

Second-place finisher Joyce will wear the Subaru Best Young Rider jersey on Tuesday. UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team’s Daniel Alexander Jaramillo Diez (Colombia) took the points for the two Utah Office of Tourism KOM climbs and will wear the classification jersey. For his part in the breakaway, Silber Pro Cycling’s Matteo Dal-Cin (Canada) was awarded the Larry H. Miller Dealerships Most Aggressive Rider jersey. The Utah Sports Commission Sprint jersey was awarded to stage winner Dahl.

Stage 2 presented by America First Credit Union finds familiar territory on Tuesday, Aug. 2. The race will follow Scenic Byway 12, an All-American Road that weaves its way through picturesque Garfield and Wayne counties. A new start this year will be hosted in Escalante, which sits in close proximity to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Escalante, which has seen the race pass through in 2013 and 2014, sets the stage for 99 miles (159.3 km) of racing. The peloton will gain 9,435 vertical feet on the day. A sweeping descent will be made into Torrey, with the addition of two 17-mile circuits through the town of Teasdale and in the shadow of the red rock spires of Capitol Reef National Park. Sprint lines will be held in Boulder and Torrey.
