This year, organisers claim the three events drew over 300,000 spectators, 400 athletes from 23 countries, close to 1000 amateur cyclists in ancillary events, over 60 expo exhibitors and attracted more than 50,000 visitors to the expos. The Philadelphia International Classic will celebrate its 23rd year and the women's race, The Liberty Classic, will take place for the 14th time.
"We had one of the most successful race series ever in our history," said David Chauner, Pro Cycling Tour director. "Thanks to our extremely enthusiastic sponsor, Commerce Bank, the tremendous support of the Commonwealth of PA, the cities of Philadelphia, Lancaster and Reading and a wonderful cause, Fox Chase Cancer Center, we have a great formula for success and we plan on making it bigger and better next year."
