Colavita announce Ireland lineup

America's Colavita/Sutter Home has announced the squad it will send to August's Tour of Ireland, which will include former Irish national champion David McCann and reigning Canadian national criterium champion Charles Dionne. The squad is one of three American teams invited to contest the August 22-26 race, with Professional Continental squads Team Slipstream and Navigators Insurance also contesting the race.

"We're honored to be selected to join UCI ProTour teams for the debut of the new Tour of Ireland," said director sportif Tom Schuler. "We're particularly proud that David McCann, one of Ireland's favourite athletes who has represented his home country in major cycling events all over the world as well as two Olympic Games, will be racing in Colavita/Sutter Home colors as the Tour of Ireland returns to the international cycling calendar after a 15-year absence."
