August 05, 2015 (Bountiful, UT) – Axeon Cycling Team’s Logan Owen (USA) won a thrilling sprint on Stage 3 presented by Zions Bank at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The 20-year-old American scored the biggest victory of his road cycling career in a time of four hours, 12 minutes and 40 seconds in front of huge crowds in the first-time host city of Bountiful.

“I knew that I had won, but I couldn’t believe it,” said Owen, who is a three-time Under 23 USA cyclocross national champion. “I was trying to stay as far ahead as possible because I knew that it was fast and a little dangerous. I was making sure that I was up there for the finish and it worked out perfectly.”

Runner-up Brent Bookwalter (USA) of BMC Racing Team claimed his second podium of the week. Edwin Avila (Colombia) of Team Colombia was third. Overall race leader Kiel Reijnen (USA) of UnitedHealthcare Professional Cycling Team finished seventh on Wednesday’s 107.9-mile stage and retained the Larry H. Miller Dealerships Leader’s jersey. Owen jumped to second overall on the General Classification and takes over the Subaru Best Young Rider jersey. Stage 2 winner Jure Kocjan (Slovenia) of Team SmartStop sits in third place on G.C., four seconds back.

“They have a lot of faith in me and I have a lot of faith in them,” Reijnen said of his UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team. “I don’t think that we’re going to slow down anytime soon. The racing we’ve had so far has led itself to aggressive racing. I think that the fans have had a good show. It’s exciting to watch.”

Fans were treated to an action-packed finish along the nine-mile circuit, which was lined with 3,000 American flags. Attacks and counter-attacks flew as riders sped around the circuit twice, which included the brutal Bountiful Bench climb. The main group, down to 45 riders, caught a lone escapee in the final dash to the line.

Stage 3 presented by Zions Bank started at Antelope Island State Park, which sits on the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. Attacks occurred at the front as the riders looped around part of the island before crossing the seven-mile causeway to the mainland. After racing on the wide roads with speeds averaging 30 miles per hour, six riders managed to escape at the 18-mile mark. The breakaway included Joey Rosskopf (USA) of BMC Racing Team, Dion Smith (New Zealand) and Tyler Magner (USA), both of Hincapie Racing Team, Jasper Novenhuis (Netherlands) of Can- nondale-Garmin Pro Cycling and Wouter Wippert (Netherlands) of Drapac Professional Cycling. Johann Van Zyl (South Africa) of Team MTN-Qhubeka presented by Samsung, soon bridged up to spend a second day off the front.

“Today it wasn’t really the plan to go into the break, but somehow I ended up being there,” said Van Zyl, who crested the first two categorized climbs ahead of his breakaway partners and nabbed the Utah Office of Tourism King of the Mountain jersey for his efforts.

Reigning USA Road National Champion Matthew Busche of Trek Factory Racing, along with a few other riders, crashed on the Trapper’s Loop climb. Injuries would cause Busche to abandon the race.

Rosskopf was awarded the Vivint Most Aggressive Rider jersey. Fans chose Dion Smith (New Zealand) of the Hincapie Racing Team as the America First Credit Union Fan Favorite.
