Comments from SpiderTech Riders
“Coming off a successful month of racing, I’m really looking forward to Philly. As a race our team has done well in the past, I expect our growing team work and strength will put Team SpiderTech in a great position for the win.”
– Pat McCarty, Austin, TX (USA)

“Philly is a special North American classic for any rider who got their start with the North American domestic teams. With SpiderTech, I feel I am returning to my 5th Philly as part of a team that has a greater chance of winning the race than any other team I have been involved with. It is a race that fits the talents of our team and we have a lot of hunger for a result there.”
– Zach Bell, North Vancouver, BC (CAN)

“I am really looking forward to Philly this year! We have a great team heading into the race. The crowds are great, and make me all that more motivated after a long hard day on the bike.”
– Ryan Anderson, Vancouver, BC (CAN)

“Personally I have had bad luck, crashing in each of the last two editions, so I’m looking to get that monkey off my back this year. Still, it is one of my favourite races of the year: a real icon of the North American racing scene. When I first started racing, riding well in Philly was a huge goal. Now the goal is to go there with the team and win the race.”
– Andrew Randell, Toronto, ON (CAN)

“It’s the biggest classic in America, a really special race on the calendar. It’s really important for us, and a race in which we have fun. The best of the world will be there, and we are ready for the challenge.”
– Francois Parisien, Bromont, QC (CAN)
