The Lodge at Red River Ranch is pleased to welcome the 2013 Tour of Utah to Torrey, Utah on August 7th. We are thrilled to be able to participate in the excitement of this amazing bike race, and to have fun at pre-stage events in Torrey. We hope that you will join us and keep up with the race.
According to the official website, “The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is one of only five UCI-sanctioned, multi-stage, North American pro cycling events in 2013. Showcasing some of the world’s most prestigious teams and cyclists for six days in August, this event now attracts worldwide attention as the top international cycling event that follows the Tour de France. Nearly a decade since its opening circuit, the Tour of Utah today stands shoulder to shoulder with the most prestigious, professional bicycle stage race events as our answer to the greatest cycling challenges the world has to offer.”
But perhaps the best part about the race stopping in Torrey, are the welcoming events. Come out and have a good time.
