2007 Philadelphia International Championship…3

Alejandro Alberto Borrajo
Finish: 4th

Something tells me that Borrajo won't be riding for Rite Aid next year. It should come as no surprise that somebody who can mix it up with Petacchi in the Giro (that's Borrajo on the left in orange) and drink the big beers with Zabel on a Euro podium would finish so well in Philly. There wasn't a teammate within 3 minutes of him in the Philly endgame, but that didn't seem to make too much of a difference. Borrajo would be the first US-based professional to cross the line, and this finish added to his impressive 2007 palmares highlights how Borrajo is a threat to podium on pretty much any race of any distance available stateside.
