The Colavita/Sutter Home men's cycling team has announced its roster for the seven stage Tour de Georgia, which begins on Monday. The eight-man squad will be lead by Irish National Champion David McCann.
"We are very excited to return to the Tour de Georgia," said director sportif Tom Schuler. "It's an honor to be selected and we look forward to applying our stamina and climbing skills to race against some of the best cycling teams in the world."
Joining McCann in the lineup is two time San Francisco Grand Prix winner Charles Dionne, and Anthony Colby, whose third-place finish in the first stage at the Redlands Bicycle Classic will position him well for the challenging climbs of the Tour de Georgia.
Colavita's eight riders form part of the 120 competitors, from 15 international and domestic teams, that will contest the event.
