The KOM jersey was hotly contested, with points on the final HC climb determining the winner.

Likewise, the battle for the podium meant that every second counted and letting up for even a moment would cost that place.  Serghei Tvetcov remains in 3rd after a heroic defense.

The Team’s Serghei Tvetcov fought all comers to retain 3rd on General Classification at The 2017 Tour of Utah. Congratulations to Rob Britton on the win, and former Jelly Belly Gavin Mannion on 2nd.
Jacob Rathe also rode brilliantly all week to take the KOM jersey on Stage 1 and hold onto it to the end!
Keegan Swirbul smashed the TT and kept 3rd overall in U23.
Thank you, Tour of Utah. We cannot wait to return and pin on Nos. 21-28.
