"After chasing a six-rider breakaway for more than 120 miles, American Jake Keough of UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling won a thrilling sprint finish in downtown Salt Lake City at Stage Four presented by Adobe of the 2012 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah Friday afternoon. Keough edged out Liquigas-Cannondale's Marco Benfatto (Italy) to the line in front of EnergySolutions Arena. Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda's Tyler Farrar (USA) finished third. A bunch sprint of 17 riders, which included the G.C. leader Christian Vande Velde of Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda, covered the 134.2-mile (216.2-kilometer) course in four hours, 47 minutes and six seconds - averaging more than 28 miles per hour. A six-rider breakaway escaped early and built a lead as great as 10 minutes racing through the Rush Valley and the historic Pony Express road. It took the peloton, led in part by UnitedHealthcare, almost 125 miles to chase down the break within the final kilometer on the downtown streets of the Utah's capital city," according to the press release written by JJackie Tyson, Media Relations Manager.
