The 2014 version of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah has its competitive field set.

On Thursday, tour officials announced that final field of 16 professional cycling teams from across the world has been finalized with the addition of five new participating teams.

Six UCI-level pro teams will cross the pond following this summer's Tour de France for the race Aug. 4 through 10.

The race, which starts in Cedar City and steadily weaves its way north and eventually into Wyoming for the first time ever, will also host three UCI pro continental squads and seven U.S.-based contiental outfits. Recent additions to this year's Tour of Utah are Cannondale Pro Cycling, Drapac Professional Cycling, and Bissell Development Team, Team Jamis-Hagens Berman and Team SmartStop.

"The 2014 Tour of Utah features an outstanding field of teams with international star power and strong domestic riders," said Steve Miller, president of Miller Sports Properties which organizes the Tour of Utah in a release. "Spectators should be very excited to witness the tremendous talent of these riders as they compete for seven days over the byways and mountaintops of Utah. The challenging route, beautiful scenery and a field of world-class cyclists add up to a highly-anticipated 10th edition of the Tour of Utah."

In its 10th year of existence, the Tour of Utah has expanded to seven days of racing across Utah and Wyoming. In 2013, the Tour covered 586 miles of terrain across the Beehive State. The 2014 race will be the fourth year being an official UCI America Tour sanctioned race. —
