It’s official-Dominguez joins Jamis/Sutter Home
Northvale, NJ (November 11, 2009) — Jamis/Sutter Home Men’s Cycling Team presented by Colavita has signed Ivan Dominguez for the 2010 season. Carine Joannou, President of title sponsor Jamis Bicycles, made the announcement.
“We are pleased to add a rider of Ivan’s caliber and experience to our successful squad,” said Joannou. “Ivan is a formidable sprinter and has won stages at the biggest races in North America, including the Amgen Tour of California, the Tour of Missouri, and the Tour de Georgia.”
Dominguez, a native of Cuba who was granted US citizenship earlier this year, raced with Rock Racing this past season after a brief stint in Europe with ProTour team Fuji-Servetto. Since turning pro in 2000, Dominguez has ridden with the top teams in North American road racing including the Saturn Cycling Team, Health Net presented by Maxxis, and Toyota-United.
“Signing with Jamis/Sutter Home is really special for me,” said Dominguez. “I have the opportunity to ride with the #1 team in the NRC and I’m reunited with former teammates Sebastian Alexandre and Luis Amaran.” Alexandre, now Jamis/Sutter Home’s Directeur Sportif, rode with Dominguez on the predecessor Colavita/Bolla Men’s Cycling Team in 2004. Amaran, #10 in the NRC’s men’s standings, was a member of the Cuban National Team with Dominguez in the late 1990s.
“Ivan’s strength and speed will be a great addition to the team,” said Alexandre. “I look forward to having him on board when we start our 2010 season in January at the UCI 2.1 Tour de San Luis in Argentina.”
