I can’t deny it , I’m a huge cycling fan and avid cyclist.  So I was excited to be able to photograph the Larry H Miller Tour of Utah this past weekend.  The race considered to be “America’s toughest stage race,”  drew some of Americas biggest talent and a handful of amazing foreign racers to the Beehive state.  Over 100 racers on 20 teams participated in the 6-day race that covered 325-miles around the state of Utah.
