2007 Team rosters

Colavita/Sutter announces men's team roster for 2007

The Colavita/Sutter Home men's cycling team presented by Cooking Light announced its 2007 roster.

Returning riders include Davide Frattini, Gustavo Artacho, and Tyler Wren, along with veterans Alejandro Acton, Hayden Godfrey, and Peter Hatton. Acton, a native of Argentina, distinguished himself last year as winner of several major criteriums riding for Target Training. Godfrey, who competed in the 2004 Olympics, is a 13-time New Zealand national champion, and Hatton, of Australia, rode for Jittery Joe's in 2006.

New riders include: Luca Damiana of Italy, making his NRC racing debut, and American cyclists Anthony Colby, Andy Guptill, Adam Bergman, Bryan Smith, and Dan Vaillancourt.

The team previously announced that David McCann, the three-time and current Irish National Road Champion, and Charles Dionne, two-time winner of the San Francisco Grand Prix had signed. A strong time trialist and GC threat, McCann has been racing with the Giant Asia team where he racked up an overall win at the Tour of Indonesia and the leader's jersey in the Tour of Thailand. In June, McCann again won the Irish national championship and will bring the Green Clover jersey over to North America to race for the first time.

Dionne, the former Canadian criterium champion, raced in the ProTour with Saunier Duval-Prodir last year. He will mark his return to the North American racing circuit after being curtailed by injury.

The team targets all kinds of US events on the NRC calendar. It will kick off the 2007 season with ten days of intense training in the hills of Napa Valley, California.

The squad will ride RC7 bikes supplied by Blue Competition Bicycles. The bikes will be fully equipped with Shimano components, wheels, shoes, and pedals, with Profile Design handlebars and stems, as well as Rotor Q-RINGS (chainrings).

Contributing sponsors include American Suzuki Motor Corporation, Bike Medicine, DeFeet International , Headsweats, Maxxis International, Park Tools, Rotor Q-RINGS, Saris Cycling Group, Selle San Marco, Specialized and Thule. Food, nutrition, and beverage sponsors include Amino Vital, The Olive Garden Restaurants and Lavazza.
