T-Mobile Team will be making its debut appearance at the Commerce Bank Triple Crown of Cycling Series in the US this coming week. The team features Greg Henderson, who won two of the three races last year when he was riding for Team Health Net-Maxxis.

Roger Hammond and teammate Mark Cavendish will fly in Saturday evening, giving them the challenge of battling jet lag in Sunday's race, the 137 km Lancaster Classic. They should be back in shape by the second race on Thursday, the Reading Classic, which covers 120 km.

The last race is the most difficult: the 250 km Philadelphia International Championship, which has 10 rounds of a circuit featuring the brutal ascent of the 17% Manayunk Wall. Last year Henderson won both Reading and Philadelphia.

T-Mobile for US races: Eric Baumann, Mark Cavendish, Bernhard Eisel, Roger Hammond, Greg Henderson, Aaron Olsen, Jacob Piil, and Marco Pinotti.
