Australian cyclist Lachlan Norris has his first professional win, taking out the final stage of the Tour of Utah.

It is also the first win in the United States for Australian team Drapac.

Norris outsprinted American Brent Brookwalter in a photo finish to the 125.8km seventh stage at Park City.

The pair broke away from a breakaway group on the descent near the end of the stage and had a 20-second lead at the finish.

"Our first win in the USA - I am so happy for this team," Norris said.

"We planned today and executed the plan exactly.

"The pace was hot up the climb and I tried to remain calm and keep my rhythm."

Norris also finished sixth overall behind American winner Joe Dombrowski, while fellow Australian Lachlan Morton (Jelly Belly) was 10th.
