SALT LAKE CITY -- The 2010 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah got under way Tuesday night.

There were several children's races around the State Capitol, and then the adults took a turn. The prologue determined who will wear the yellow jersey in stage one Wednesday.

Taylor Phinney with Trek-Livestrong had the best time.

"The level of competition and what's at stake gets higher and higher every year, and that's what fans want to see. They want to see good, hard-hitting and impactful racing, and that's what they get when they come," said Steve Miller, president of the Tour of Utah race.

Beginning Wednesday, there will be five stages over five days. Stage one is an 85.2 mile road race from Ogden's Union Station to Salt Lake's Research Park.
