TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championships 2009

16th Liberty Classic;Top women head for Philadelphia

57.6 mile (87km), Philadelphia , PA

This weekend sees over 130 professional, international women cyclists compete in the 16th annual Liberty Classic, one of the longest-running, most prestigious women’s races in the USA.  The Liberty Classic race consists of four laps of a 14.4-mile (21.8km) circuit through Philadelphia with four steep climbs up the grueling Manayunk Wall.

Missing from the provisional line up is the 2008 winner Chantal Beltman (Team Columbia Highroad). Although the team do have the in form Ina-Yoko Teutenberg who has shown her talents she has been the victor here twice already. Also on the provisional list is the young Mara Abbot and Kim Anderson, they helped to create the winning break in 2008 for Beltman. 

There are a number of riders who can win this event. Of the international teams, Trixi Worrack and American World TT champion Amber Neben (Equipe Nurnberger Versicherung) are in great form. Tina Pic and Tiffany Cromwell (Colavita Sutter Homes p/b Cooking Light) rode well in Montreal and could be in with a chance. 

Laura Van Gilder (Jittery Joe's Presented by Kudzu.com) can climb well so might be up there if a break goes. 

Team Tibco can not be excluded from being up there with a chance of victory, Lauren Tamayo just finished 3rd in the tour of Montreal and she is joined by the talented southern hemisphere riders Joanne Kiesanowski and Emma Rickards. 

Team type 1 have Alison Powers who is leading in the North american road race series and Kori Seehafer in their team, both are riding well this season. 

Webcor builders also have a strong line up, again with Australians, Alexis Rhodes and Nikki Butterfield and  Amy Dombroski and Katheryn Mattis.

Jazz Apple are also fielding an Australian Ruth Corset who rode well in the Montreal World Cup.
