Cilvinaite Wins Vuelta Costa Rica!
February 25, 2013
In their first race of the 2013 season, Fuji-sponsored Team Pasta Zara-Cogeas not only earned a victory in all but 1 stage of the 5-stage Vuelta Internacional Femenina a Costa Rica; their Lithuanian Road Champion, Inga Cilvinaite, won the General Classification.

Multiple Venezuelan champion and 2012 Olympian Evelyn Garcia tallied the team's first victory in Stage 1. Cilvinaite followed with a win in Stage 2's individual time trial. Teammate Edita Janeliunaite won Stage 3. And Cilvinaite earned a hard-fought victory in the mountainous Stage 4.

2nd across the line in Stage 5 after launching an attack that secured the win over then-race leader Lorena Maria Vargas, Cilvinaite's stellar and consistent performance throughout the week aboard her Fuji Supreme carried her to overall victory by a 31-second margin. Garcia finished just off the GC podium at 4th.

"Beyond winning the Lithuanian national road championship, this is the greatest happiness of my life," said Cilvinaite.
