The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah confirmed the final four teams to race the 2016 men’s race on Thursday, adding some international flair to the 12th edition of the seven-day race.

Organizers named three Pro Continental teams, Fortuneo – Vital Concept (France), Nippo – Vini Fantini (Italy), One Pro Cycling (Great Britain), and one Continental team, Silber Pro Cycling (Canada), to round out the complete 16-team line-up. It will be the first Tour of Utah for all four teams.

“We have an incredible international field for this year’s Tour of Utah. Six of the 16 teams are making their first appearances in Utah. We are excited to have them race on the challenging courses throughout our beautiful state for seven days in August,” said Jenn Andrs, Tour of Utah executive director.

The race runs August 1-7, and 2015 champion Joe Dombrowski (Cannondale) is expected to return to defend his title. Brent Bookwalter of BMC Racing, who won the points classification last year, is also expected to race, as is two-time general classification runner-up Chris Horner of Lupus Racing Team.
