Ivan Dominguez (Colavita Olive Oil) won a bunch sprint to take out the Bank of America Invitational Criterium on Saturday night. Dominguez won by less than half the length of a wheel to beat Gord Fraser (Health Net) and Henk Vogels (Navigators) at the finish of the 86 km race through uptown Charlotte. All top three finishers came in with a time of 2 hours, 51.3 seconds.

"The weather was one of the biggest factors in the race," said Dominguez of the unseasonably cool temperatures for early August. "Today the weather was perfect for the race. It was fun."

Dominguez almost crashed in the last straight. He corrected and moved left to beat the field in a 200 metre sprint. Dominguez received $25,000 for his first-place finish. The event was promoted as the world's richest race of its kind, with a total purse of $125,000.

Race officials announced that an estimated crowd of 25,000 people came to watch.
