The Saturn cycling team announced Friday that it has signed 19-year-old Californian Rahsaan Bahati to their 2002 roster.

Bahati, who rode for Mercury last year, first captured the attention of American cycling when he won both the junior and senior elite criterium national championships in 2000. Lightning fast, Bahati went on to win the junior national road championship later in the year.

Bahati is currently enrolled at Indiana University where he is majoring in computer animation and telecommunications. He will join the team in January for training camp, and will compete on the college circuit when not on the road with the Saturn team.

Bahati, the youngest rider on the team, brings the Saturn men’s roster to 13.

“Rahsaan looks to be one of the most talented athletes developing out of our current crop of young men,” said Saturn men’s team director Jim Copeland. “I think he can achieve great things in cycling and life.”
