The American professional cyclist, Tom Danielson is part of the Team Garmin-Sharp and is considered to be one of the most talented cyclists of America. He has even been compared to Lance Armstrong for all the successes he has achieved in his cycling career till now.
The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is a very prestigious cycling event that takes place every year in the month of August and the most successful cyclists and teams participate in this seven-day event. This year the Tour of Utah took place from the 4th of August to 10th of August, 2014.
Tom Danielson was leading the tour in the overall standing because his performance in all the stages of the event was highly impressive. In the final stage of the tour Tom Danielson stood in the 5th position. However, his 5th position did nothing to hamper his 1st position in the overall standing.
Danielson must have experienced a déjà vu as he was again able to win the Tour of Utah like last year. It was due to his effort all throughout the week that he was able to claim victory of the title this year as well.
Tom said that he really wanted to cry after winning the tour because he felt elated as his hard work had paid off. He is going to remain the defending champion for the Tour of Utah next year in August as well.
Christopher Horner came second in the overall standing followed by Winner Anacona who came third.
Cadel Evans performance in the tour has also been quite good as he was able to win the last two stages (stage 6 and stage 7) of the event and prove his worth and talent.
We will just have to wait and watch whether the Danielson will be able to defend his title next year or not.
