It looks like the best route yet. Not quite as much star power as California, but there should still be a few big names.
Anybody else going to see it live? I'll be there for the first two stages out near Bryce Canyon. It's still shocking to me that they got approval to ride through there. I plan on hanging out at the start area for Stage 1 and then riding down 148 to watch them pass by on 14 on their way back to Cedar City. Hopefully I'll be able to ride fast enough to make it there on time.
I'm still not 100% sure what I plan on doing for Stage 2. I need to be back to Cedar City by 5:00, which limits me a little bit. I might go to Bryce Canyon since I never thought I'd be able to see a race in a National Park. On the other hand, it might be pretty crowded there and I bet there will be a lot of sections of the route that aren't. I'd like to hit up the feed zone, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do that and make it back to CDC by 5:00.
It should be a fun race. I wish I could be there for Stage 5.
