Tour of Missouri Branson Time Trial
September 12 ? Stage 3


Thursday?s time trial was one of the most challenging of the entire 2007 season. Starting and finishing in the tourist-centric town Branson, the 18-mile race against the clock featured nary a stretch of flat terrain.

England had a rather unusual look of determination on his face as he began his ride.  Sean Sullivan was questionable to start the time trial after experiencing breathing problems in Wednesday?s stage.

Even when he?s not sprinting for the win, people are taking Ivan Dominguez?s picture.  Heath Blackgrove concentrated on the technical turns at the start of the course.

Wherry would clock the team?s fastest time of the day, good enough for 18th place. England (left) and Sullivan have that look of ?that wasn?t so bad? on their faces.
