Flashback Friday: 1994 Saturn Cycling Calendar

Saturn has long been a big proponent of an active lifestyle. Today, you'll find Saturn supporting marathons all over the country, but years ago Saturn sponsored a cycling team. According to the 1994 Saturn Cycling Calendar (cover pictured above), the team originally "came together in 1992" and was made up of "a collection of young amateur cyclists from around the country." By then end of their first year in competition, the team "competed in more than 100 races and compiled 53 wins." They also won the prestigious National Road Race Championship and the National Criterium Championship. Two members of the team even qualified and rode for the 1992 U.S. Cycling Team. In 1993, the team "turned pro," but that didn't slow them down. With 13 riders on the roster, they drove around the country in a fleet of Saturn cars, "facing a full schedule which included all the top pro races in the United States. According to USAcycling.org, Saturn sadly ended its "unparalleled support of the sport of cycling" at the end of 2003 after 12 years of racing.
