2012 Tour of Utah: Stage 01

The Tour of Utah is billed, probably justifiably so, as the hardest stage race in North America.

I II

I 131.7 MIles, 8,939 Vertical Feet, and 99°F

Unlike in every other year of its history, the Tour of Utah (billed, probably justifiably so, as the hardest stage race in North America) started it’s week off with a full stage rather than a prologue. This decision was probably not welcomed with completely open arms by the riders (including Team Exergy and Bontrager Development rider Joe Dombrowski, who MFS will introduce tomorrow with Stage 02 coverage) who had to go bust ass in the heat for five hours. But it’s not up to them, they can go start their own race if they don’t like it.

When MFS asked Freddie Rodriguez (that's not him picture, that's Matt Cooke) what SPF he was using, he answered, "I'm using SPF 50. I wish it was 100. Maybe if I slobber it on twice, does that count as 100?"
