Tina Pic is Pan Am Road Winner!

Yet another 'trend', Tina Pic earns a Pan Am road title. She's been using the WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

Tina Pic gave the US Cycling Team its ninth medal and sixth continental title with a victory in the elite women's road race at the 2007 Pan American Road and Track Championships on Saturday.

Tin Pic won the 72-kilometer road race for the American squad by out-sprinting silver medalist Yumari Gonzales of Cuba and bronze medalist Gina Grain of Canada.

Tina Pic's victory gave the American women a sweep on the road events after Alison Powers win on Friday's time trial.

Given the flat course and short distance of the road race, Pic , a crit pro, was designated as the team leader prior to the start. Midway through the race, Pic had a flat, but was able to regain contact with the peloton using the support of teammate Dotsie Bausch, who finished 15th.

The four-time USA Cycling elite women's criterium champion, Pic, was delivered to the line by Powers and Bausch before sprinting to a bike's length victory over Gonzales.

She can haul the mail!
