Henderson Wins Wachovia Cycling Series- Lancaster

Greg Henderson of HealthNet Presented by Maxxis edged defending U.S. Pro Cycling Champion Fred Rodriguez of Davitamon Lotto in the Wachovia Cycling Series- Lancaster Race. Henderson's teammate Ivan Rodriguez finished third. The winning time was 3 hours 21 minutes 28 seconds for an average speed of 27.10 miles per hour.

Rodriguez battled through a number of problems to finish second in the race. He only had one teammate, Wim De Vocht, because most of his team and much of their equipment was delayed due to stepped-up security at airports this weekend. In addition, he broke a pedal midway through the race and had a derailer ripped off the spare bike he was lent before he could complete the lap that he had to ride with it. In spite of this, he was able to catch the peloton, bridge up to the leaders, and finish a bike throw behind Greg Henderson.

Readers who followed the Dodge Tour de Georgia will remember that Greg Henderson won the sprint classification in that six day race back in April.

Pro cycling will continue in the Philadelphia area on Thursday afternoon at 4:30pm with the Wachovia Cycling Series- Trenton.
