 PETRA ROSSNER WINS HER SEVENTH LIBERTY CLASSIC

Erinne Willock takes Queen of the Mountains

German Petra Rossner (Nurnberger/Lietzsport) won her seventh Liberty Classic today in Philadelphia, outsprinting Canadian Gina Grain (Victory Brewing) and American Laura Van Gilder (Genesis Scuba). Rossner and 76 other riders completed the race's 90.56 kilometres in 2 hours, 25 minutes and 55 seconds, at an average speed of 37.24 km/h.

Team RONA's Erinne Willock, from Victoria, B.C., won the Queen of the Mountain classification, as she accumulated the most points in the race's eight climbing sprints. Her teammate Andrea Hannos was RONA's top finisher with a 12th place.

The Wachovia Liberty Classic completes four laps of a 23-kilometre course in the streets of Philadelphia. The course includes two climbs, especially the short, steep Lemon Hill. The first three laps were marked by a few attacks with no consequence. In the last climb up Lemon Hill, RONA's Katrina Grove attacked and, by the time she reached the top, had created a real gap on the pack. "Historically, that's where a break will go in the end," Grove explained. "You give it a chance, because what have you got to lose?"

But Grove was not completely alone. On her wheel was Judith Arndt, Rossner's teammate, who merely wanted to cover Grove until the pack came back. Grove managed to increase the gap to about 5 seconds, but the peloton came back on the pair in the last straight. Arndt led out the sprint for Rossner, who did not need a photo finish to confirm her victory.
