Phliadelphia 119 km
A classic US race taking welcoming the women's World Cup for the first time. This has the makings of a major race on the calendar if it gets a few years to grow. This first edition has some of the major stars but not the full depth of a european CDM race yet. On the other hand the US UCI teams have a full lineup here and it should be a cracking race.
The course is 6 laps of 19.8 kms which means 6 times up the Manayunk wall, including the final climb to the finish.

Almost pulled off the solo win in the US nats. Here no one can touch her.
