National Champion

I took this photo yesterday in Philly just minutes after the end of the Wachovia USPro Cycling Championship race. I snapped the shot with my camera phone through the chainlink fence behind the podium.

Chris Wherry had just won the race and was on stage receiving the National Champion's jersey.

He rode an inspired race and deserved the win after a bold late race attack that he held to the finish.

We split time between the start/finish area and The Wall in Manyunk. The Wall was nuts...parties and chaos everywhere.
I'm sure the riders fed off the energy each time up the climb.

We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed Philly. It was nice to see a big-time bike race with a huge crowd in the US.

Thor was a trooper and thoroughly enjoyed the race.
