2007 Philadelphia International Championship…11

Bernhard Eisel
Finish: 3rd

Ever the consummate professional, even when waiting for the porto-john, Eisel waved off my photo op until he could fully zip his jersey. And just to make life confusing for the geographically challenged, this Austrian speaks English with an Australian accent.

I wondered why Team Discovery, America's only ProTour squad, didn't send any riders to its home country's biggest one-day race (not even a collection of B-teamers). Evidently Eisel thought the same thing and bitch-slapped them around in absentia at the post race press conference.
