Hometown: Buford, GA
Cycling strengths: All-around, sprinting

One of the most decorated cyclists in the North American women's peloton, Tina claimed the overall NRC Champion title for 2008, the fifth time in her career. The five-time US National Criterium Champion raced to victory at nearly every major criterium, including the Mt. Tabor Criterium stage of the Mt. Hood Cycling Classic, Chris Thater Memorial Grand Prix, and Priority Health Grand Cycling Classic, 12 individual victories, including Fitchburg Longsjo and the Tour of Somerville, and captured the overall US SpeedWeek Criterium Series title. A graduate of the University of Virginia with degrees in Finance and Marketing, Tina switched from triathlons and duathlons to cycling while at the University of Georgia where she'd enrolled in pre-med classes to pursue a career in orthopedic surgery. Enjoying the strategy, changes in speed, and teamwork that are the hallmarks of road racing, Tina found herself hooked. She won the 1995 Collegiate National Championship for the University of Georgia, earned an invitation to the International Women's Challenge in Idaho, and began racing full-time in 1996. Tina is married to her "#1 training partner", former pro cyclist Chris Pic, and makes time for windsurfing, waterskiing, scuba diving, and gardening when her schedule allows.
