Women's Prestige Cycling Series continues in Altoona

The US-based Women's Prestige Cycling Series will continue with the International Tour de 'Toona, which starts on Monday, July 25. This is the second season for this women-only series, which has already visited the Redlands Bicycle Classic and the Nature Valley Grand Prix. Following the Tour de' Toona, the top ten teams will receive travel grants to participate in the Series finale at the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix.

Christine Thorburn (Webcor Builders) holds a commanding lead over Tina Pic (Quark) in the individual classification (440 vs 264 points), having won the overall titles at both Redlands and Nature Valley. Thorburn will be difficult to dislodge from the series lead if she shows the same form that she had at these other events. In contrast, Pic is in a virtual three-way tie for second with teammate Annette Buetler (Quark) and T-Mobile's Kim Baldwin (264, 264 & 253 points), leaving the second step of the podium still up for grabs.
