Winner in Austria

Ketchum cyclist Richard Feldman

The amazing Ketchum cyclist Richard Feldman can once again claim the title of the world's best time trialer in the Master Men's 30-39 age class.

Feldman, 36, captured his third consecutive UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) Time Trial World Championship on Wednesday with a 24 minute, 41.10-second clocking on the 20-kilometer (12.4-mile) course at St. Johann, Austria.

Durance Cycleworks racer Feldman was a 31-second winner over Christer Olsson of Sweden (25:12) as third-place Thomas Schweiger of Germany (25:13) was another second behind. In all, there were 62 racers in the men's 30-39 class and only three Americans.

It was the fourth world time trial victory in five years for Feldman, who is a 14-time Idaho time trial champion and also national men's TT king.
