Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light Announces Team

Sutter Home Winery has joined Colavita USA and Cooking Light to sponsor the Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light, one of only two U.S.-based women's team to qualify for cycling's prestigious UCI designation for the 2007 season. John Profaci, Vice President of Marketing for Colavita USA, made the announcement.

"We are pleased that Sutter Home Winery is expanding its role in U.S. cycling," Profaci said. "With continued support from our media partner, Cooking Light, we look forward to another winning season and the special honor of representing the U.S. at major cycling races around the world."

The Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light will be led by Tina Pic, ranked #1 among women cyclists in the U.S. Joining her will be teammates Dotsie Bausch (USA), Sarah Tillotson (USA), and Iona Wynter-Parks (JAM). For the 2007 season, the Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light has added Canadian powerhouse Alex Wrubleski, who currently holds the twin titles of Canadian National Road Race Champion and National Time Trial Champion, Candice Blickem (USA), Mackenzie Dickey (USA), Andrea Dvorak (USA), Stacey Spencer (CAN), and Alison Powers (USA).

"We are thrilled with the roster we've lined up for the upcoming season," said Team Director Jim Williams. "We've got a well-balanced squad, which will allow us to compete for the overall win in stage races as well as one-day events. I'm looking forward to working with this great group of accomplished riders."

As previously announced, the Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light will race against the top U.S. and European teams at UCI events in 2007, including Australia's Geelong Women's Tour and World Cup and Italy's Giro d'Italia Femminile.

The Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light will also be involved in several major initiatives related to women's health, well-being, and safety. As Cooking Light Executive Editor Billy Sims explained, "Through our regular columns, feature stories, and special events, Cooking Light readers will have the opportunity to not only get acquainted with these incredible women but also find inspiration in their extraordinary accomplishments." In addition, the Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light plans to partner with organizations around the country to raise awareness for the importance of wearing bike helmets, particularly among teenage girls. Team members will help advance the Sutter Home for Hope Foundation's goal to find a cure for breast cancer throughout the season as well.

The Colavita/Sutter Home Women's Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light will kick off the season in February at training camp in Napa Valley (CA), hosted by Sutter Home Winery. A preliminary race schedule for 2007 will be released shortly.
