Philadelphia Bike Race

With strong competition, attendance, Philadelphia International Championship bike race in its prime

Philadelphia Daily News
IF YESTERDAY’S TD Bank Philadelphia International Championship bike race was the last one in this city after 25 years, it certainly put on a memorable finale.
Team Columbia-Highroad turned in a sweep, as Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, of Germany, took the women’s 57.6-mile Liberty Classic, and fellow German Andre Greipel sprinted to his first title here in the 156-mile men’s race. It was the third win in 5 years for the 35-year-old Teutenberg, while Greipel had to overcome a huge early breakout and steamy weather.
Columbia-Highroad goes 1-2 in Philly
“There’s no stopping Team Columbia-Highroad’s blond German sprinter Andre Greipel. He has won race after race since he returned from the injured list a month ago. After a stage win at the Four Days of Dunkirk on May 10, three stages of the Tour of Bavaria in late May, and Germany’s Neuseen Classic last week, he made it six wins in four weeks on Sunday afternoon by taking the 25th anniversary edition of the TD Bank Philadelphia International Championship.”
