SILICON SLOPES, Utah, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Workfront®, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced the company has signed an agreement to be a cornerstone sponsor of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The Tour of Utah will take place July 31-August 6, 2017, starting in Logan and finishing in Salt Lake City. Workfront will serve as the title sponsor for Stage 4 of the race, which will be held in South Jordan, Utah on Thursday, August 3. The Tour of Utah is expected to attract over 400,000 spectators and will include 25+ hours of national TV coverage.
The Tour of Utah is a seven-day, internationally sanctioned cycling race along the scenic byways of Utah and is referred to as "America's Toughest Stage Race." Now in its 13th year, the Tour features 16 of the top men's professional cycling teams expected to bring 120 athletes from more than 20 countries. The 2017 Tour of Utah will cover 600 miles of racing and 36,525 feet of climbing.
"We are a global company; however, we feel a distinct responsibility to show support in our home-state," said Alex Shootman, CEO of Workfront. "It isn't very often that we get the chance to show off the beauty of our state on a national level. But more importantly, it gives us the opportunity to be involved in a very special way in our community, all while providing an exciting opportunity for our customers and employees to be a part of this great annual event."
The Workfront sponsored Stage 4 covers new territory across 125 miles in Salt Lake, Tooele and Utah counties on Aug. 3. Additionally, Workfront will host guests who will participate in a private corporate time trial event and a private VIP bicycle ride.
Stage 4 begins with the inaugural start line in South Jordan. The Stage features 4,000 feet of elevation gain, which should bring a Wild West finish back into South Jordan. There will be two finishing circuits of three miles each around South Jordan City Park. The company will provide a live broadcast of the race at its booth by the finish line.
