Tour of Utah Stage 4

The Tour of Utah professional road bike race was in town this week. Top notch racers came to Utah to race the 5-stage race. It ended Sunday with Levi Leipheimer winning, but Saturday night was the criterium on Main Street in Park City. Criteriums are fun to watch because the racers go around and around a set course for a set amount of time, so you get to see them lots of times. I went with some friends up there to take it all in.

The speed that these guys descend in a pack and take sharp corners is awesome!

Local boy Jeff Louder ended up smoking the field for the stage win. We had some dinner afterward and then Jim and Shelly took a tour of our construction zone at the house. Shelly couldn't believe we are still living here during this.
