Saturn, which was no where to be seen on that last lap, timed it perfectly.

As Navigators and Mercury fought it out, Saturn’s Ivan Dominguez scoots right up the middle and takes the win.

3:39 p.m. Mercury is still leading the front of the field.

3:38 p.m. Mercury’s Chris Wherry is still driving the front of the group.

3:36 p.m. The Mercury team is at the front of the field. Their man Gord Fraser is in prime position, with Navigators’ Marty Nothstein right behind him.

With one-and-a-half laps to go, Mercury is still at the front.

3:34 p.m. Well there’s a familiar face… Roberto Gaggioli has attacked off the front. He’s been joined by Mercury’s Mike Sayers… and now by the whole field.

3:33 p.m. The leaders have been caught. We have a bit less than three laps to go.

3:31 p.m. The gap is now down to less than 15 seconds. The cooperation up front is not happening.

With three laps to go, the best the men in the lead can hope for is to escape on their own.

3:30 p.m. The gap is down to about 30 seconds… the Saturn team is driving the chase and the leaders are no longer cooperating.

3:26 p.m. The seven leaders are slowing as they jockey for position. The gap is down to 48 seconds back to the field, which is now being led by Prime Alliance and Saturn.

3:19 p.m. Vogels has been caught and Cruz is off the front. His move was chased down by the Italian Camponogara from Navigators.

Cruz has been joined now by McCormack. The gap is still quite small and it looks like the leaders may be fighting it out down to the wire.

As a group — with seven laps to go — the leaders are still 1:20 ahead of the field. 3:16 p.m. With nine laps remaining, Vogels is venturing off on his own, trying to get away from the lead group before the sprint. Right now he has a small, five-second lead on the group.

3:06 p.m. With 12 laps to go, the leaders are 1:20 ahead of the field. The chase has never really started and it appears almost certain that the leaders will stay away. The seven men in the lead —
Antonio Cruz (U.S.Postal)
Henk Vogels (Mercury)
Siro Camponogara and Chris Baldwin (both Navigators)
Frank McCormack (Saturn)
Mariano Friedick (Jelly Belly)
Hilton Clarke (Schroeder Iron)
Mariano Friedick (Jelly Belly). If we were betting types, we’d put our money on Vogels, even though both Navigators have done the least work of the bunch.

2:59 p.m. The leaders are still about 1:20 ahead of the field with 15 laps to go. There have been several attempts by riders in the main field to bridge up to the leaders, but none has managed to create a gap.

2:52 The seven leaders are holding on to a lead of about 1:00. Armstrong has eased off the chase and the work in the field is falling to Prime Alliance again.

2:38 Maybe Lance Armstrong is all that keen on seeing this break survive after all. The Tour champion is now turning in an effort at the front of the field and has created a split. The time gap is beginning to shrink… and the leaders are now down to less than one minute again.

2:35 p.m. We are halfway into today’s race and the seven leaders have improved their advantage to around 1:10 ahead of the field. The seven men in the lead —
Antonio Cruz (U.S.Postal)
Henk Vogels (Mercury)
Siro Camponogara and Chris Baldwin (both Navigators)
Frank McCormack (Saturn)
Mariano Friedick (Jelly Belly)
Hilton Clarke (Schroeder Iron)
Mariano Friedick (Jelly Belly)
— are cooperating for the most part, though the two Navigators are doing the least of the seven.

2:25 p.m. Not represented in the break, the Prime Alliance squad is now leading the chase. VeloNews contributor Jonas Carney is at the front of the field and driving the chase. The leaders are 45 seconds ahead of the field. Carney fans can look forward to Jonas’s report on the event after the race, too.

2:19 p.m. The leaders are still holding on to a 50-second lead over the field. The peloton is not in hot pursuit since many of the race’s major teams are represented at the front. Lap times are around 2:35 and this group may eventually be in a position to lap the field.

2:14 p.m.The leaders are now 1:03 ahead of the field.

2:04 p.m. The lead group has grown to seven, with Mariano Friedick (JellyBelly). The leaders have a 17 second advantage on the field.

1:57 p.m. The six leaders are just about 10 seconds ahead of the field.

1:55 p.m. A group of six riders has moved off the front. Postal’s Antonio Cruz is in there as well as Mercury’s Henk Vogels and Navigators’ Chris Baldwin.

1:45 p.m. The pace continues to be steady and fast. There has been a steady stream of attacks off the front, but nothing has managed to build a significant advantage.

1:35 p.m. They’re off and quickly, too. The field is strung in single-file and off at a high pace. The 50-lap, 100-kilometer race covers A 2-kilometer circuit through the streets of Lower Manhattan with the Start/Finish line at Wall and Water Streets, where our editorial director John Wilcockson is helping with the New City television feed and supplying us with updates throughout today’s race.

1:34 p.m. We are nearing the start of the New York Cycling Championships through the streets of lower Manhattan.

1:08 p.m. It’s quite warm and sunny at the start of today’s race. Weather predictions suggest we could see temperatures in the mid-90s. There is a slight breeze coming off of the river.

The start time is 1:30 and we’ll be back with updates before and during today’s event.

1:05 p.m. Good afternoon. Thanks for joining us for today’s live coverage of the 2002 New York City Cycling Championships.

We have VeloNews’s John Wilcockson on site and he’ll be sending in reports throughout the afternoon.
