Portraits From Philadelphia

Erica Allar (Aaron's Women's Professional Cycling) - A rising star in the Women's Professional peloton, Erica would finish 10th at the Liberty Classic.

Ivan Dominguez (Toyota-United) - The quintessential sprinter from Cuba had a rough day and did not figure into the finale.

Slipstream/Chipotle presented by H30 - In the staging area, usually a flurry of activity, the Burrito boys conserved their energy before heading out to race in the 90 plus degree temperatures.

Alison Powers (Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light) - Finished in 34th, after returning from a spectacular showing at the Tour de l'Aude.

Mara Abbott (Team High Road) - The reigning US National Road Champion would help spring teammate Chantal Beltman to victory. She would finish 24th.

Vanderkitten Racing - The first-year team from Northern California would place 4 riders in the top 50. Melissa Sanborn (193) would be their highest finisher in 18th.

Kristin Armstrong (Cervelo-Lifeforce) - The first up "The Wall" in Manayunk, Kristin would earn the Queen of the Mountains jersey for her efforts. She would miss the podium presentation as a result of heat exhaustion.

Magnus Backstedt (Slipstream/Chipotle presented by H30) - The former Paris-Roubaix winner would not be a factor in the summer's first heat wave.

Brooke Miller (Team TIBCO) - The TIBCO leader would miss the final selection, but take home the field sprint to claim second.

Regina Schleicher (Equipe N├╝rnberger Versicherung) - The former World Champion used every motivating technique in her arsenal to help her teammate ascend "The Wall." Regina would finish in 5th, her teammate in 28th.

Tina Pic (Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light) - The incomparable Pic looked every bit the part of suffering, but would still finish 6th.

Tyler Hamilton (Rock Racing) - In a 7-man break for most of the day, Hamilton would roll across the line in 61st.

Kacey Manderfield (Verducci Breakaway) - The best U23 rider turned podium girl for the little gentleman who presented her trophy.
