Medalist Sports to No Longer Pursue Return of Tour of Utah
The Tour of Utah was a highlight each year for race fans and professional cycling teams alike as it provided a professionally run stage race that traversed the beautiful landscapes and terrain of Utah.
Medalist Sports has released the following statement regarding the cancelation of the Tour of Utah due to difficulty in securing enough sponsorship funding.
Despite ardent efforts to continue the Tour of Utah, Medalist Sports announced today that it will no longer pursue planning efforts for 2022 and has requested of USA Cycling and the UCI to have the event removed from the international cycling calendar.“On-going sponsor and host community discussions have been positive; however, not strong enough to support a viable effort to meet our collective expectations,“ shared Chris Aronhalt, owner and President of Medalist Sports, LLC.“While disappointed, Medalist Sports is grateful for the opportunity and cherishes the Tour of Utah’s legacy.”
Hopefully, there are opportunities for the Tour of Utah to return in the future.
