United States of America Professional Continental team Garmin-Chipotle will headline this weekend's Univest Grand Prix. The team will be led by defending Univest Champion Will Frischkorn, who will be supported by Tour of Georgia winner Tom Danielson.

The squad, run by former professional Jonathan Vaughters, will face stiff competition from the local American teams. The Tour of Pennsylvania winning Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast team will be present, with winner Martin Gilbert leading the squad while Team Type 1 and Mexican outfit Tecos will also mount a charge on the September 6-7 race.

Polish-registered Amore e Vita/McDonalds will also contest the event with Ukrainian Yury Metlushenko, who won an exciting photo-finish in the Lehigh Valley Classic and was second overall in the 2008 Commerce Bank Triple Crown of Cycling.

The event features a tough 100-mile road race on Saturday, that winds its way through the Bucks and Montgomery counties before the uphill finish in Souderton. Racing continues with the fast, tactical Univest Criterium of Doylestown on Sunday.
