Mt. Hood Classic ? Stage 4  June 1, 2007

The effort of spending much of Thursday?s race in a breakaway proved to be a telling factor in the performance of the Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team in Friday?s 18.5-mile (29.7 km) Best Western Hood River Inn Scenic Gorge Time Trial.

Chris Baldwin led the team but his result was only good enough for ninth place. Teammate Justin England finished 11th and Heath Blackgrove was also in the Top 15 in 12th place.

In the overall standings, Baldwin is ninth overall, 3:00 behind Nathan O?Neill (Health Net presented by Maxxis) followed by England in 10th (3:03 back). Burke Swindlehurst is 28th, Bobby Lea is 31st, Blackgrove is 38th and Stefano Barberi is 44th.
