NEW WINNER, SAME TEAM FOR TD BANK PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIP

Philadelphia International 2011-0031.emlrg.jpgPhiladelphia (June 5, 2011) – Even though the HTC-Highroad team did not send defending champion Matt Goss to the race this year, his team still proved to be the strongest as Alex Rasmussen of Denmark took over the title winning the field sprint with a finishing time of 5:59:04.6, ahead of Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) and Robert Förster (UnitedHeathcare).

"It was not exactly what we planned but it turned out good," said Rasmussen about the team's plans to work for sprinter Leigh Howard. Late race mechanicals meant the team had to improvise with their choice for sprinter. As well the team was short-handed compared to other full squads, meaning that they could not control the race, and especially the final lead-out, like in previous years.
