Over 100 professional, international women cyclists will compete in the 16th annual Liberty Classic, one of the longest-running, most prestigious women’s races in the country.  The Liberty Classic race consists of four laps of a 14.4-mile circuit through Philadelphia with four steep climbs up the grueling Manayunk Wall and is held during the men’s International Championship on the same course.  Start Time: 9:10 AM
The Rosters have been posted and we have a CRCA team in the race, with Maria Quiroga of CRCA/Radical Media, and led by Kathryn Donovan, currently 5th in the NRC and 3rd Overall at the Tour of the Gila.
