The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah again brought part of its world-renowned event to Logan this summer and Gary Saxton, manager of the Logan Downtown Alliance who was in charge of Logan’s contribution, says it turned out to be an exciting and also a profitable endeavor.
Saxton told the Logan City Council on Tuesday that the city put out $15,000 for its share of the cost, and in return what was spent by the cyclists, their coaches, mechanics and others ended up with a total of $301,744.
Saxton said the group wanted to come back next year but the date changed and that would interfere with the Small Satellite Conference at Utah State University.
“We simply don’t have the hotel rooms and the accommodations to support the event in 2018,” Saxton told the council. “We’re talking about 2019 and what that might be.
“It just depends on what the cycling calendar looks like for 2019. The Larry H. Miller Group would love to come back again so we’ll see how that goes.”
So now, Saxton said, they are looking forward to a possible return as soon as possible.
