The same thing happened to me but with only 4 months/1200 miles of commuting on my Sram equipped Lemond.
At the bottom of a steep hill 1/3 of a mile from home. The guys at the bike shop (to which i walked the next day) said it probably happened because of a dirty chain. Also, the bike was in a gear too high at the bottom of the hill. There was definitely pedal-mashing happening when the chain broke. Fixed it with a repair link.
