After withdrawing from professional cycling last year, Colavita USA announced that it would return as the co-title sponsor of the new Colavita-Bialetti women’s team in 2018. American sprinter Tina Pic will lead the team at select criteriums across North America. Colavita has been a staple among sponsorship in professional men’s and women’s cycling, along with amateur cycling and events. Headquartered in New Jersey, Profaci has been the main driver behind the company’s cycling sponsorship program since 2003 including its most recent UCI-registered Colavita-Bianchi women’s team last year. Colavita teams had 15 years of success on the North American circuit, and through its support, helped numerous athletes move on to become national champions, world champions, and Olympic competitors that include Giorgia Bronzini, Rachel Heal and Alison Powers.
