Re: [2.HC] Tour of Utah

I do worry a little bit about the future of the race.

It's a busy time of year with Binck Bank, ARoN, Burgos, Czech Tour and l'Avenir all going on at the same time and the effect of that was obvious in the amount of WT teams present and the drop off in level of riders this year. The thing is it could get worse in 2020 with the Olympics. I don't know the exact dates of the races in Tokyo, but even if it's several weeks apart from Utah it could still produce a knock-on effect as other races shuffle their positions a bit later in the calendar.

More positive news from earlier in the year was that two American races had applied for this new Pro Series or whatever it's called (the rebranded UCI ranking for HC). Utah must be one, so it's not all doom and gloom.
