Career SummaryBorn and raised in Havana, Cuba, Ivan Dominguez is Toyota-United’s number one sprinter. He is a twotime Pan-Am Games Gold Medalist and former Cuban National Champion. He set (1997) and still holds his country’s 4-kilometer record.
He has had several major wins including the CSC and the Bank of America Invitationals and the USA Crits Series. In 2006, he had ten podium appearances with a second place finish at the Philadelphia International Championships.
