OGDEN, Utah - December 9, 2015 - Mavic, a leading manufacturer of bike systems and riders’ equipment, announced today a multi-year partnership with the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah as the official neutral support provider for the men’s professional, multi-stage race and the women’s race event.

The Tour of Utah men’s race is a seven-day, UCI-sanctioned, North American cycling event and is known as "America's Toughest Stage Race™". The race features the top men’s professional cycling teams in the world, racing throughout Utah with significant elevation changes and unpredictable weather. The 2015 Tour of Utah featured 712 miles of racing and 51,422 feet of elevation gain. The 2015 Tour of Utah Women’s Edition: Criterium Classic featured two days of racing for professional and elite women’s teams, sanctioned by USA Cycling.

Mavic has provided neutral support for athletes and teams around the world since inventing this concept in 1973. The role of Mavic neutral support is to provide mechanical support to any rider or team that is in need. Mavic will provide vehicles, motorcycles and nine mechanics during the entirety of the week-long race.

“We are thrilled to be a part of ‘America’s Toughest Stage Race’ and to share our expertise in neutral support to the riders and teams,” says Mike Wilson, regional marketing manager of the Americas for Mavic. “This is the biggest stage for road racing within the U.S. and it’s a perfect opportunity to show our support for cycling as a whole, especially with Mavic’s U.S. headquarters now being based in Ogden, Utah.”

“Our goal with the Tour of Utah has always been to partner with the best brands in the industry. We greatly appreciate the support from Mavic, and the level of expertise they bring to the race with neutral support,” said Jenn Andrs, executive director of the Tour of Utah.

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is scheduled for August 1-7, 2016. Organizers will announce the new host venues on December 10, 2015 at 10 a.m. MST at the Megaplex Theatre at The Gateway in Salt Lake City. Details about the Tour of Utah Women’s Edition will be provided in early 2016.
