Tour of Utah: Prologue

For 2011, the Tour of Utah went to Park City for a new prologue course. A difficult 2 km uphill course greeted the riders this morning. In the end, Sergio Henao took the yellow jersey with a time of 4'05" Teammate, and 3rd place finisher Oscar Sevilla attributed his and Sergio's good performance to training in Colombia, which he said had hills similar to Utah.
Here are the top 10 finishers:
  1. Sergio HENAO Gobernacion Indeportes Antioquia COL .04’05”
  2. Francisco MANCEBO RealCyclist.com ESP .04’07”
  3. Oscar SEVILLA Gobernacion Indeportes Antioquia ESP .04’10”
  4. Tejay VAN GARDEREN HTC-Highroad USA .04’10”

 Due to a problem with bandwidth, I'll have to upload pictures at a later time.

Tomorrow is the first stage in Ogden. I unfortunately will not be able to attend, but I'll post results when they are available.

So he only had to ride 4 feet 5 inches to win the yellow jersey? I don't mean to brag, but I could have possibly whooped his butt if given the chance.
