Tour of Utah 2012
“Our strategy (BMC Racing Team) was to stay together the longest possible, the whole team as long as possible, to limit the damage.
Levi had two minutes (down on G.C.), so for us that gave us a security margin. We told each other that if he attacked, we would let him go but still limit the gap to the finish.
There was (a gap of) one minute and twenty seconds and I couldn’t let him get more time so as to not lose the jersey. I thank my whole team for this magnificent day.”
- Johann Tschopp of BMC Racing was the overall winner of the 2012 Tour of Utah.
The 2012 Tour of Utah covered 545 miles over six days with cyclists climbing through some of Utah’s most beautiful and challenging terrain in the Rocky Mountain’s Wasatch Range.
