Three miles from the finish line at Snowbird Resort, Italian Bardiani-CSF rider Giulio Ciccone made his move, positioning himself ahead of the Tour of Utah’s top four overall leaders. The gap continued to grow as he hung onto his lead while climbing up the Snowbird Summit, resulting in him finishing first in Saturday’s Stage 6, also known as the Queen Stage.

“Just under [3 miles I] wanted to do a little attack to see how the others would react,” said Ciccone. “Once I saw I had a little gap to regulate and pace myself well, I knew the last [1.2 miles] were a little easier.” Bardiani-CSF teammate Simone Sterbini finished in second place while 20-year-old Neilson Powless (Axeon Hagen Berman) finished third.
