The Commerce Bank 'Triple Crown of Cycling' will return to the cities of Lancaster and Reading for the second year of the series. Held in conjunction with the UCI men's races, the two towns will host fast-paced criteriums set in historic downtown neighbourhoods as part of the women's series. The action then moves to the grand finale, the Commerce Bank Liberty Classic, in Philadelphia on June 10th.
The women will 'warm up' the crowds, and will be inspired by the $2000 prize purse to race aggressively on the spectator friendly courses which will use the same start/finish line as the Pro Men’s races that follow. Last year, Ina Teutenberg took home the $5,000 purse for the series after winning the two criteriums and taking second to Regina Schleicher in Philadelphia.
Teams interested in competing in the Pro Women’s races in Lancaster, Reading and Philadelphia should contact technical director Drew Cunningham at Drew21Cunningham@aol.com
