Colavita/Sutter Home has signed its second international champion in as many days. David McCann, a three-time and current Irish National Champion will pull on the Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light jersey in 2007.

The addition of McCann gives Colavita/Sutter Home a powerful 1-2 punch, following the recent announcement that __Charles Dionne__, the two-time winner of the San Francisco Grand Prix and former Canadian Criterium Champion, has signed with the team after a year of racing in Europe.

"David McCann is a world class veteran in the sport who will add not only true leadership, but also more international flare to our 2007 roster" said John Profaci, vice president of Colavita USA.

A strong time trialist and GC threat, McCann has been racing with the Giant Asia team where he racked up strong performances, including the overall win at the Tour of Indonesia and the leaders jersey in the Tour of Thailand. In June, McCann again won the Irish National Championship and will take the green clover jersey to North America for the first time.

Commenting on the recent signings, Team Director Tom Schuler said, "Charles and David are first-class athletes and will give us the tools we need to compete at the highest levels of racing in North America. These guys are ready to go and to make their mark next year."
