“As long as there is a Wall in Manayunk there will be a world-class cycling event in Philadelphia," says lawmaker
Organizers hope to bring the event back in 2014 and "make this the preeminent event the region deserves"
There was a time when the Manayunk Wall and its namesake were just a steep road and just a struggling suburb of Philadelphia. A bike race changed that

TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship 2011 Preliminary Startlist
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.

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.
