The old American classic in Philadelphia is back this weekend for the 27th year (18th for women). The young and incredibly versatile Peter Sagan will take on his second Philadelphia International Cycling Championship as favorite, while Ina Yoko Teutenberg will chase the record books in the women’s Liberty Classic.
PHILADELPHIA (VN) —It may not be the national championship anymore, but Sunday’s TD Bank Philadelphia International Championship is still America’s biggest — and most prestigious — single-day race. And at 27 years old this year, it is now older than many of the men favored to add its title to their palmares. With a field lacking past winners and a number of young riders showing promising results in recent weeks, Philadelphia could be ripe for a youth movement in the men’s race.
