On Sunday, Saturn’s Viktor Repinski won the 4 Bridges of Elgin road race in Elgin, Illinois. The only UCI under-23 race on the U.S. calendar, 4 Bridges of Elgin has slowly grown into one of the biggest races on the calendar for up-and-coming young riders, with past winners including Charles Dionne and Danny Pate.
Repinski, Saturn’s 21-year-old from Belarus, broke clear with about a mile to go in the 66-mile race. The Saturn rider soloed in, while Jonathan Erdelyi (C-bike.com) led in a nine-rider chase group just five seconds behind. Erdelyi took second, with Shawn Milne (Wheelworks-Mengoni) third, Adam Bergman (Team Mack) fourth and Jean François Laroche (VW-Trek) fifth.
