Tina Pic wins US Open

Colavita Sutter Home review

Victory in freezing conditions

Colavita/ Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light’s Tina Pic won the US Open in Richmond Virginia.

A small but powerful team of three lined up to start the women’s US Open that included Jamaican national Champion Iona Wynters, Andrea Dvorak and Tina Pic.

The race was delayed by one hour while the riders and officials waited for an unexpected, early morning snow-storm to pass through while temperatures hovered below the freezing point.

Clear skies broke and the nine one hour and ten minute timed event started with a bang as Iona broke from the front of the field with one other rider. The duo worked well together to stay off the front for four laps. Once the break was reabsorbed Andrea showed the strength of six riders covering every counter attack that followed.

The Colavita/Sutter Home trio set up the perfect situation for Tina having Andrea attack at the base of the climb with approximately 500 meters to go. With the field strung out Tina and Iona remained patient until rounding the final corner to the finish.

Tina’s sprint blasted her to the finish line in first place taking another top spot on the podium for Colavita/Sutter Home. Iona and Andrea raced into 12th and 17th after a solid team effort to help Tina take the win.
