Trinchero Family Estates and Colavita USA have announced the continuation of their partnership into 2006. Their sponsorship of the Colavita Olive Oil/Sutter Home Wine men's pro team will continue, along with their joint brand participation at Gay Life Expo and collaboration on Sutter Home's Capsules for the Cure programme to benefit breast cancer research.
For 2006, the Colavita Olive Oil/Sutter Home Wine men's team has re-signed the core of its team from this year and added several new riders, including Belorussian rider Viktor Rapinski and Kyle Wamsley, who finished third at the USPRO and USCF Criterium Championships and won the 2005 Tour of Somerville. The team will travel to Napa Valley as guests of Sutter Home Winery to train before the 2006 racing season kicks off in early March.
Information on the Colavita Olive Oil/Sutter Home Wine men's team, as well as Colavita recreational cycling clubs throughout the country, is available at www.teamcolavita.com .
