|Team TIBCO sends squads to Glencoe Grand Prix and Philly Cycling Classic
A big weekend of racing lies ahead with Team TIBCO sending two squads to contest the
Saturday’s Glencoe Grand Prix will take place just outside of Chicago, featuring a technical 10-corner, 2.1-kilometer lap for 50 kilometers of racing. The National Criterium Calendar event is also a part of the USA CRITS Championship Series and will draw many of the nation’s top sprinters. Team TIBCO’s six-rider squad will include Kendall Ryan, Holly Mathews, Alizee Brien, Page Robertson, Skyler Schneider and her sister Sam Schneider who placed 2nd here last year.

On to Philly
Saturday May 31

Philadelphia will set the stage for the next event on the National Racing Calendar, the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic on Sunday. New for 2014, the race has been upgraded to a UCI 1.1 category race, making it the highest rated one-day race in the U.S.
Team TIBCO’s 6-rider squad will include Olympians Jo Kiesanowski and Jasmin Glaesser, as well as Amanda Miller, Patricia Schwager, Kristabel Doebel-Hickok and Sara Headley.
The 60-mile race will start and finish at the top of the infamous Manayunk Wall - an unforgiving 17 percent climb. Riders will complete 5 laps on a 12-mile circuit that includes the steep and narrow ascent up the Wall, a brief descent and rolling section through Fairmount Park, followed by another climb and QOM point up Lemon Hill. Riders will then turn back along the flat Kelly Drive to head back up the Wall.
Be sure to catch the finale, as the painfully steep hill-top finish on Manayunk Wall will call for heroic all-out efforts by those who have made it to the end.
Just like last year, race organizers will offer up equal prize money to the men’s and women’s races.
