SUGARHOUSE CASINO RAISES THE STAKES AT THE PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIP WITH $10,000 JACKPOT

Philadelphia – 06/02/2010 – The TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship just got more exciting. SugarHouse Casino, a new sponsor in 2009, has come back in 2010 with an gambler’s twist  to the race -- a SugarHouse Jackpot sprint competition with a prize purse totaling $10,000.

Just like in races such as the Tour de France, a separate 'race within a race' for the sprinters makes for added excitement throughout the race. The format is simple: 

- Points are awarded to the first three riders over the start/finish line on Ben Franklin Parkway on certain laps (7 points for first, 5 for second and 3 for third.)

- Sprint laps begin with the end of the opening small loops of Eakins Oval and Logan Square, then occur on odd number laps (1-9,) and conclude on lap 10 before the last big circuit to Manayunk. 

- There will be double points awarded at the half-way mark of the race (lap 5) and the final sprint (lap 10.)

PRESS CONFERENCE KICKS OFF BIKE RACE WEEKEND

The featured riders included, Scott Zwizanski (Kelly Benefit Strategies,) Tyler Wren (Jamis-Sutter Home,) Teresa Cliff-Ryan (Colavita-Baci,) and Chad Hartley (Kenda-Gear Grinder.)

 

"This is the most important one-day race of the year for us," said Zwizanski. "Guys not from the area know about this race. The crowds here are amazing."

 

TD Bank introduced its new mascot, “TD”, a colorful character who will be at the race activities on Sunday.

 

Mayor Nutter encouraged the expected 300,000 plus crowds to visit the TD Bank Family Fun Zone during the race as well as the Astra Zeneca Wellness Challenge before the race start of 9:00 a.m.
