Philly Week - Final - Philly Int'l Championship

What a scorcher! Huge kudo's for the men and women who were out racing in Philly today. The temps was almost 100 degrees!!! The race coverage was totally horrible but we made the best of it with the video and live chat at CN. Slipstream was active all day and it was awesome to see Meatball up in the front as much as he was. I'm hopeful that it's a great boost for the Olympic trials coming up. Will was up in the mix as well as Tyler and Martijn. Brad Huff was right there too! High Road had several attacks and the last few laps seem to be non stop action with attacks going, getting pulled in, and counter attacks shooting off. This was continuous and had to take a serious toll with the heat they were doing it in. Mark was there and should have another great write up and awesome pics that I will add tomorrow when he posts them. Until then, he's posted a few in the PdC live chat thread linked below. He even included some of Benna and even if you're not a cycling fan - oh so worth a look! :-O~...
