June 4, 2005 – The 2005 Wachovia USPRO Championship celebrates its 21st year of professional international cycling in Philadelphia with more than 200 of the world’s top professional male cyclists descending upon the streets of Philadelphia. Now in its 21st year, the Wachovia USPRO Championship is the longest running and richest single-day cycling race in the U.S. – prize purse $142,000 US – and one of six official events on the 2005 Pro Cycling Tour. On Sunday, June 5, at 9 a.m. the cyclists will compete on a 14.4-mile circuit on the fast and flat Benjamin Franklin Parkway and scenic Kelly Drive, and hilly Manayunk – riders must endure the infamous & steep 17% grade Manayunk Wall – each lap a total of ten times and 156 miles, in front of over 500,000 spectators. The race will determine the Wachovia USPRO National Road Champion.

A total of 24 teams with more than 165 elite international women cyclists will compete on June 5th in the 12th annual Wachovia Liberty Classic, one of the nation’s most prestigious races for elite women racers, and the world’s richest single-day women’s event — prize purse $52,000 US. The 57.6-mile race consists of four laps of a 14.4-mile circuit through Philadelphia with steep climbs up the grueling Manayunk Wall. The Wachovia Liberty Classic is part of the Women’s Pro Cycling Tour, featuring National, World and Olympic Champions as well as U.S. and international stars who compete on both the domestic and world pro circuit.
