The Ultimate Challenge, co-presented by University of Utah Health Care and the Utah National Guard, gives amateur cyclists the opportunity to experience the same challenging course as the professional athletes, many who compete in the Tour de France. The Stage 6, “Queen Stage”, offers a new start line at Rice-Eccles Stadium and gives amateurs the opportunity to ride the same 109 mile grueling course up Little Cottonwood Canyon to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort.
