WILSON, Wyo. — The 40th annual LoToJa Classic bike race that takes riders 200 plus miles from Logan Utah to Teton Village took place this Saturday.

According to LoToJa’s website, the LoToJa was started in 1983 by two Logan cyclists, David Bern, a student at Utah State University, and Jeff Keller, the owner of Sunrise Cyclery. The men wanted a race that resembled the difficulty of a one-day European classic like Paris-Roubaix or the Tour of Flanders. LoToJa’s first year featured seven cyclists racing 192 miles from Logan to a finish line in Jackson’s town square. The winning time was just over nine hours by Bob VanSlyke
