Tour of Somerville — Vives 5th, Petersen 7th

report by Colavita/Sutter Home

May 26, 2009 (Linden, NJ) – The Colavita/Sutter Home Cycling Teams presented by Cooking Light seized the home-field advantage at the 2009 Tour of Somerville, known as the “Kentucky Derby of Cycling.” With spectators lining every inch of the roughly one-mile course, including representatives from team sponsors Colavita USA and Jamis Bicycles, Tina Pic and Sebastian Haedo sprinted to their second consecutive victories.

Capturing her fourth career win, Tina Pic established herself in the pantheon of Somerville champions. The first winner of the Mildred Kugler Women’s Open to successfully defend her title in over 10 years, Tina also took the top honors in 2000 and 2006. Only two other athletes — former World Champion Karen Strong-Hearth and two-time world sprint champion Sue Novara-Reber — have accumulated as many wins in the 30+-year history of the race.

In the 2009 edition, the Colavita/Sutter Home Women’s Team, represented by Kelly Benjamin, Cath Cheatley, Andrea Dvorak, Shontell Gauthier, Rachel Heal, Tina Pic, and Nicky Wangsgard, raced aggressively for 17 laps over the four-corner circuit. The field remained intact until the end, ready to finish in a bunch sprint. Tina launched her sprint from the final corner and crossed the line ahead of Theresa Cliff-Ryan (Verducci-Breakaway) and Laura Van Gilder (C3-Sollay).

“We always race to win,” said Tina. “But the Tour of Somerville is special. Our sponsors are here to support us and we want to do our very best for them.”

In the 50-mile Kugler-Anderson Memorial Tour of Somerville, the Colavita/Sutter Home Men’s Team timed its lead-out perfectly to launch Argentinean sprinter Sebastian Haedo for his second consecutive victory. Teammates Luis Amaran, Alejandro and Anibal Borrajo, Luca Damiani, Guido Palma, Kyle Wamsley, and Tyler Wren worked relentlessly against repeated attacks to keep Sebastian in position. Just before the last corner, Sebastian jumped and overtook Jake Keogh (Kelly Benefit Strategies) and Aldo Ino Iiesic (Team Type 1) on the final straight.

Celebrating his victory, Sebastian acknowledged the support of co-title sponsor Colavita USA and bike partner Jamis Bicycles and the honor of racing before the extended Team Colavita family, including the U23, junior, and recreational teams.

The Colavita/Sutter Home Cycling Teams continue racing next weekend in Montreal with the Women’s Cycling World Cup and Arlington, VA where the men’s team will line up to support Luca Damiani in his quest for a second consecutive win at the CSC Invitational.
