- Anthony wins stage

The Kelly Benefit Strategies rider was quickest in a five-man bunch sprint at the end of the 187 kilometre route, comprising three laps of the roads around Ogden.

Overall race leader Henao crossed the line second to hold onto the leader's jersey while the Colombian's Gobernacion de Antioquia team-mate Oscar Sevilla finished third.

Radioshack duo Levi Leipheimer and Janez Brajkovic occupied fourth and fifth places respectively to stay in touch on the GC.

Leipheimer currently lies five minutes behind Sevilla and a further seven adrift of Henao while Brajkovic is in fifth, behind Anthony and 21 minutes off the leader's pace.

The six-day race continues on Thursday with stage two, a relatively flat 151km jaunt around Utah Lake from Lehi, to Provo.
