On Saturday in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina, Ivan Dominguez displayed his knack for winning big-time money criteriums, as he took the win at the inaugural Bank of America Invitational, featuring one of the biggest one-day payouts in the world. With $125,000 in prizes on the line, including $25,000 for first place, the Colavita Olive Oil rider beat out Health Net-Maxxis’s Gord Fraser and Navigators Insurance’s Henk Vogels in the mad dash to the finish.

In the closing 10-laps of the 44-lap, 53-mile race, Health Net took control of the race, chasing down the late-race break that included Navigators’ Mark Walters and Viktor Rapinski, and then setting up to have New York City winner Greg Henderson lead out NYC runner-up Fraser. With all of the top teams battling it out, Fraser was first to jump, but Colavita’s Dominguez, who also won the inaugural New York City race two years ago, beat Fraser to the line to pocket the win and the $25,000 payday from the first-year event, which was also a fundraiser for the Brain Tumor Fund of the Carolinas.
