Tour of Utah, Stage 3: Hincapie Moves Up

12. August 2011

Tooele, Utah

George Hincapie finished 10th – his highest placing in an individual time trial in more than two years – and Jeff Louder retained the Best Utah Rider jersey for the BMC Racing Team Friday night at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

Circuit Race Saturday

Hincapie was 30 seconds off the winning time of Tejay Van Garderen (HTC-Highroad) on the 15.6-kilometer course and climbed into ninth overall. Defending champion Levi Leipheimer (Team Radioshack) finished second and took the overall lead. Louder is16th overall and helped design Saturday's 11-lap, 131-kilometer circuit race through Salt Lake City. "It will basically be Radioshack trying to keep it together for Levi and the Columbians trying to make it as hectic and isolate him as much possible," he said. "I hope to play off that and go for a stage win."
