I'm pleased to announce that Operation Gadget will cover the 2005 Wachovia Cycling Series in person. I was granted a media credential for the event and I expect to be in Lancaster today for the first race in the four race series.
The events in the Wachovia Cycling Series are:
- Wachovia Cycling Series - Lancaster in Lancaster, PA on Tuesday, May 31 beginning at 4:30pm,
- Wachovia Cycling Series - Trenton in Trenton, NJ on Thursday, June 2 beginning at 4:30pm,
- Wachovia USPro Championship in Philadelphia on Sunday, June 5 beginning at 9:00am, and
- Wachovia Liberty Classic in Philadelphia on Sunday, June 5 beginning at 9:10am.
The Wachovia USPRO Championship is the biggest and best known of these races. It's a 156-mile race to determine the 2005 U.S. Professional Road Champion who traditionally wears the stars-and-stripes jersey in UCI events for the next year. Over 500,000 spectators turn out for this race and the Wachovia Liberty Classic, which is known as the world's richest single-day women's cycling event.
I found out on Saturday that I was granted a press credential for these races, so I haven't had the opportunity to announce Operation Gadget's coverage until now. I hope to provide good overall coverage with an emphasis on the technology behind the races-- similar to what you read in my coverage of the 2005 Dodge Tour de Georgia.
The only race in this series that I've attended in the past was the Wachovia Cycling Series - Trenton that I attended as a spectator in 2003. I rode my bike down to Trenton to watch the race, a distance of about 13.5 miles from the current Home Office in East Windsor, NJ.
