Team Tibco earns podium awards in Illinois and Philadelphia
 
Haeusler wins queen of the mountain (QOM) and takes 3rd at Philly Cycling Classic while Samantha Schneider earns 2nd at Glencoe Grand Prix.

Team TIBCO put up a strong performance this weekend, with one squad competing at the National Criterium Calendar’s Glencoe Grand Prix Saturday (Glencoe, Illinois) and another squad racing the UCI 1.2-ranked Philly Cycling Classic on Sunday in Philadelphia. The Team came away with a pair of podium finishes and a win in the Mountains competition in Philly.

Samantha Schneider delivered a stellar performance at the Glencoe Grand Prix Saturday, just outside Chicago. Schneider placed 2nd after staying away from the main field in a three-woman break for the majority of the race. Erica Allar won the race. In spite of stormy, wet conditions, the breakaway saw a gap grow up to 45 seconds at one point and stayed away to the end. Meredith Miller took 6th on the day, racing with teammates Melanie Spath, Rushlee Buchanan and Skylar Schneider.

Sunday’s Philly Cycling Classic was eagerly anticipated and hotly contested with course changes that included a hill-top finish on the Manayunk Wall and five laps of racing for 60 miles. World-class climber Claudia Haeusler won the Queen of the Mountains competition and secured her place on the podium with a 3rd place finish. Shelley Olds took 4th on the day.
