Just one day after the list of teams for the Commerce Bank Triple Crown was released, Cyclingnews learned that a new team was recently added to the list of competing men's teams - the ProTour Liquigas team - race spokesperson Stephanie Simon confirmed. This makes three ProTour teams for the race, along with Team CSC and High Road.

The inclusion of Liquigas is likely due in part to the team's bike sponsorship with the US company Cannondale whose manufacturing plant is in Bedford, Pennsylvania, about 200 miles (321km) from Philadelphia.

While the composition of the team is unknown, including if superstars such as Daniele Bennati will be coming over, the team has raced in Philly week multiple times in the past and has an extensive roster from which to choose a team.
