Many Utah visitors never get to actually see the Great Salt Lake. This is not the case for Stage 3 riders. The day’s ride begins on Antelope Island—the largest island in the Great Salt Lake and home to a significant wildlife population, including over 500 American Bison. Riders can see these magnificent creatures up close as they loop around the island before heading back to the mainland and North Ogden. At this point, the day really becomes challenging as the riders reach a KOM at North Ogden Divide before rushing toward lush, green Eden Valley. From there, the Tour returns to Pineview Reservoir before revisiting Davis County, where riders will finish the day’s race in Bountiful. Of course, things aren’t as easy as simply entering the city. Bountiful will host two 9-mile circuits that include a brutal climb up 400 North. These difficult climbs to the mountain bench will force the toughest contenders to step up, allowing fans to perhaps see for the first time which riders to watch for during the rest of the Tour.
