Published November 11, 2007

PHILADELPHIA, PA (BRAIN)—Pro Cycling Tour, organizers of the Commerce Bank Triple Crown of Cycling, have hired The Shipon Group of Philadelphia to market the three-event international cycling series including next year's 24th annual Commerce Bank Philadelphia International Championship scheduled for June 8.

The Philadelphia race will continue as America's top international cycling classic and one of the richest and most prestigious one day cycling races outside of Europe.

According to Pro Cycling Tour chief executive officer David Chauner, "We have been searching for the right professionals to help us raise the stature of the series to
where it belongs, a signature event of its sport like the Indianapolis 500 or the Kentucky Derby. Eric Shipon and his team are the ones to do it."

Founded in 2006, The Shipon Group has quickly become one of the hottest sports marketing agencies in the region, thanks in large part to its principal founder and president Eric Shipon.

Shipon is an eighteen-year veteran of sports and entertainment marketing and sponsorship.
