The Red Robin Madison Cup XXXII, including the Air Products Finals, will conclude the Valley Preferred Cycling Center's season in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania, on Friday, August 22.

Riders from around the world will gather to see who will take home the prestigious Bob Rodale Trophy as Madison Cup champions for 2008. This year, 15 teams will be competing for the trophy including US Olympian and national Madison champion Colby Pearce riding with Dan Holloway for the Garmin-Chipotle team, world omnium champion Hayden Godfrey with Doug Repacholi, Pan-American champion Emile Abraham with up and coming T-Town native Jackie Simes, and Leandro Bottasso of Argentina riding with Australia's Pete "Fitzy" Fitzpatrick.

This international field will also includ sprinters such as Australian national team members Jason Niblett and Kaarle McCulloch, Pan-American silver medalist Ben Barczewski, Australia's Laura McCaughey, and Liz Reap Carlson.

In addition to the Madison team racing, the men's and women's Rider of the Year series will come down to the wire as both competitions are still up for grabs.

In tandem with the professional racing, the youth, junior, and adult finalists in the season-long Air Products Cycling Community Developmental Cycling Program will take to the track in their own championship event.
