Roswell Criterium  2009

Tina Pic wins third consecutive Roswell criterium

Linden, NJ, April 27, 2009 

 

Write-up

Five-time US National Criterium Champion Tina Pic of the Colavita/Sutter Home Women’s Cycling Team presented by Cooking Light captured her third consecutive win at the 2009 Historic Roswell Criterium in Roswell, GA on April 26th.  The field rode aggressively in the opening laps of the 50-minute race, resulting in a break of seven riders, including Athens Twilight winner and current US National Criterium champion Brooke Miller, Laura van Gilder, Kori Seehafer, Meredith Miller, Jenn McCrae, and Rebecca Larson.  Colavita/Sutter Home teammates Erica Allar, Nicki Wangsgard, Kelly Benjamin, and guest rider Carmen McNellis worked to keep the field together over the circuit’s decisive hill.  Tina defended her title against attacks in the final lap with a winning sprint to the finish line.

Tina’s win followed a strong team effort at the Athens Twilight Criterium in Athens, Georgia on April 25th.   “Our main goal was to hold the field together for a field sprint,” said Directeur Sportif Iona Wynter Parks.   Nicki, Erica, and Carmen reacted to every aggressive move coming from the peloton, allowing Kelly and Tina to keep their legs fresh for the inevitable field sprint. Confusion with the official lap-counter caused the peloton to hesitate, not knowing how many laps remained (one, as it turned out).  Team Tibco’s lead-out train jumped first and Tina scrambled to make up the deficit, using her fierce sprint to jump around six riders en route to the finish line.  Tina caught all but one rider, US National Criterium Champion Brooke Miller, to take second.
