Team Jamis – Hagens Berman will line up as one of sixteen teams for the Tour of Utah, an internationally sanctionedstage race running from August 6th through 11th.

The 2013 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is a 6-day stage race taking riders on a course nearly 600 miles long that covers over 40,000 feet of climbing. A UCI 2.1 rated event, the race boasts an impressive start list featuring many WorldTour level teams that will race from the famous national parks in southwest Utah to the ski resort town of Park City. The high altitude and big mountain passes make this a race that suites the climbers.
After his performance that captivated the nation this summer in the Tour of California, Colombian climber Janier Acevedo is ready to shine in Utah on his favorite mountainous terrain. He is a former stage winner, having won the circuit race in Salt Lake City in 2011. He will be joined by Park City resident Jamey Driscoll, who will be one of the riders fighting for the Best Utah Rider jersey. Argentine fast-man JJ Haedo will be the go to guy when it comes down to a sprint finish. They will be supported by Tyler Wren, Carson Miller, Ruben Companioni, Luis Amaran, and Matt Cooke.
