Saxton optimistic that Tour of Utah will return to Logan soon

The Tour of Utah, which had its start in Logan in 2015, began in Park City this year. As Logan’s downtown manager, Gary Saxton was in charge of most of the details when the race came through Cache Valley last year. He says this year’s tour has brought back some exciting memories.

Although it rained all day in Logan, Saxton says for him and for many other people it was one of the most exciting days in Logan’s history. Now he says there is a chance the tour will be coming back.

“I’m a fan of the Tour of Utah and was able to go to some of the stages this year and speak to the Larry H. Miller Group as well as the race director,” says Saxton. “I would say they are very excited about the possibility of bringing the Tour of Utah back to Logan in 2017.

“I’m sure they’ll be in contact with Logan City, discussing what they see as some options.”

Saxton says he plans to do all he can to make that happen.
