Mt. Hood Classic ? Stage 3  May 31, 2007

Toyota-United Team Director Kirk Willett said it best: ?It?s not everyday you have four out of six guys in a breakaway.? The boys in red-white-and-blue took a chance by sending Chris Baldwin, Stefano Barberi, Heath Blackgrove and Burke Swindlehurst up the road early in the Stage 3 Cooper Spur Circuit Race.

The move didn?t succeed, but it did lead to Toyota-United?s Justin England moving into the top 10 overall, joining Baldwin as a contender for the overall with three stages to go.

Before the stage, Chris Baldwin?s grin revealed that Toyota-United had a little something unusual in mind for the day.  In one of the more unusual sights of any race this season, Toyota-United put four riders into a six-man breakaway.
