Boulder, Colorado, (August 8, 2002) - Jonathan Vaughters literally flew off Hoosier Pass into Breckenridge last year, overcoming the challenge of Chris Horner to take his first Saturn Cycling Classic by mere seconds. He'll have the chance to repeat the feat this Saturday, August 10, when more than 150 riders compete in the rugged 140-mile cycling endurance test from Boulder to the historic Rocky Mountain resort town.

Vaughters, representing The Handle Bar & Grill, will be joined by an outstanding Saturn Cycling Classic field representing 10 different countries and 21 different U.S. states. The Denver resident will also be riding with several fellow Coloradoans, 24 from Boulder, including recently crowned National Road Race Champion Will Frischkorn of the Saturn Team and cycling's winningest rider with over 200 victories, Scott Moninger, who won the 2000 Saturn Cycling Classic for the Mercury Team.

"Once again, we have an elite field to challenge the toughest one day cycling race in the world," says Len Pettyjohn, race director for the Saturn Cycling Classic. "With Jonathan returning along with Will and Scott, we should have another excellent race with several interesting duels over Guanella and Hoosier Passes. Last year, Vaughters used his experience to catch the leaders on Guanella Pass and battled Horner all the way into Breckenridge. We expect the same level of competition this year."

Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond will be the official starter for the Saturn Cycling Classic. LeMond, the first American to win the Tour de France and the World Cycling Championships, will lead the peloton from the starting line in Boulder at 9:20 a.m. to the finish line in Breckenridge, Colorado at approximately 4:00 p.m. Horner, unfortunately, is recovering from a broken collarbone and will not be competing.

The Saturn Cycling Classic is an intense 140-mile race from Boulder to Breckenridge scheduled for Saturday, August 10. Reaching altitudes over 11,500 feet and negotiating seven mountain passes, no race in the world equals the distance, number of climbs, elevation and varied environmental conditions of the Saturn Cycling Classic, which uniquely combines the world's finest male elite road and mountain bike racers.
