Philadelphia as its canvas, the film follows riders from every one of the major
teams through the experience of Philly week and goes behind the scenes to learn
what it takes to orchestrate and execute a victory at the most prestigious one
day classic in American bike racing.

The film steps into the lives of riders like Bobby Julich, Chris Horner and
Erik Saunders as we follow them into their homes and on their training rides to
see the drive necessary to be a world class pro.

While there are as many as twenty pre-race favorites at US PRO, only one man
can win, and only one American can take home the stars-and-stripes jersey. The
film offers the viewer an in-depth explanation of the tactics as every big team
in the country comes together, each with its own strategy for victory. Never

bike racing.

The film will let the viewer experience the true emotional range that goes
along with being on a professional team as a top level pro bike racer.
