Philly: Team Presentation Photos

New, 19 comments

The team presentations for the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship (men's race) and Liberty Classic (women's race) took place today.  This was, apparently, something of a secret - I only found out as the result of a random email, and by the number of teams (and riders on teams) that showed up, it wasn't exactly common knowledge that it was happening even within the race.  In any event, hit the flip to see some of the folks that will bring us the action tomorrow.

Perhaps they drew the Team Type 1 short straws?

Afterwards, some of the riders decided they'd rather hang around the race expo than go back to their rooms (real pro rider quote, via Megabeth: "They don't even have MTV!").  Seems like a great idea before race day, no?

Balance work, maybe?
