Washakie Renewable Energy, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been producing advanced biofuels since 2007. Along with its commitment to alternative fuels from renewable sources, Washakie Renewable Energy maintains involvement in its community as a sponsor of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

More than 125 cyclists from 23 countries gathered in Utah from July 31st through August 6th for the 13th Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The race has become one of the top professional cycling events in the world, second only to the Tour de France.
Called “America’s toughest race,” the Tour of Utah garners international attention as it winds through the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and several Utah communities. The Tour of Utah features seven stages and stretches a total of 605 miles.
In the race, cycling teams tackle impressive climbs that total more than 36,500 feet. The race ends in Salt Lake City, where cyclists circle the capital in front of thousands of fans with front-row seats to the action.

The overall winner in 2017 was Robert Britton of the Rally Cycling team. Britton is from Regina, Saskatchewan, and credits his talented and supportive team with the win. After a 5th-place finish in 2016, the 2017 championship is Britton's first win in the Tour of Utah.
