June 7/09 17:48 pm - Philadelphia International Championship results, Lacombe 6th, Pinfold 10th

Posted by Editoress on 06/7/09

After the Columbia-Highroad women's team won the Liberty Classic earlier in the day, the men's team placed first and second a few hours later in the Philadelphia International Classic on Saturday finishing a successful day for the team.

Sprinter Andre Greipel led the field to the line coming off the wheel of his teammate Greg Henderson, who held on for second place.

"It was great to win here today. The team did a really nice job," said Greipel. "We had a lot of cards to play with three sprinters and some good breakaway riders. In the end it came down to a sprint and Greg gave up his chances to lead me out. It was nice that he could take second place.

Team director Tristan Hoffmann gave full credit to the riders today.

"From the car we didn't get a lot of information on what was happening in the race but the riders did a great job. We had a very good team here so we had to take responsibility for the race. The other teams were looking at us to bring back the break and make the moves. The guys tried to get a few moves going late in the race and Edvald went in a second break which looked good for a while."

"There was a break with 60km to go," said Boasson Hagen. "We had four guys in there but it was too big [30 riders] and it wasn't working well. When it came back we tried again."

Boasson Hagen and his breakaway partner was close to catching the lead riders with 15km remaining in the race but the peloton was closing in and the bunch came back together. Columbia-Highroad set the pace for the last three laps through the finishing circuit and up Lemon Hill and finally set Greipel up for the win.

"I'm very happy with the last few weeks of racing," added Greipel. "I had quite a few months of racing so it's nice to be able to return with the form to win for my team."

Greipel has won six races in the last month of racing.
