Alex Rasmussen of HTC-Highroad won a sprint finish Sunday in the 156-mile Philadelphia International Championship pro cycling race.

Rasmussen finished with a time of 5 hours, 59 minutes, 4 seconds, just ahead of Peter Sagan of Liquigas-Cannondale and Robert Forster of Team UnitedHealthcare.

Riders made 10 circuits of a course of almost 15 miles from central Philadelphia to suburban Manayunk and back, along with several shorter loops before the final dash to the finish.

In the women's Liberty Classic, current world champion Giorgia Bronzini of Colavita Forno d'Asolo finished the 57.6-mile course in 2 hours, 28 minutes, 28 seconds, ahead of Shelley Olds of Diadora Pasta Zara and Jennifer Purcell of Team Danbury Audi.
