In Masters A 35-plus class

That gave him a 3:11 victory over overall runner-up and Masters A 45-plus winner Rick Greenawald, 48, of Twin Falls and the Intermountaiun Cycling Organization (2.38:07).

     In third place overall, right behind Feldman in the Masters A 35-plus class was Nate Galpin, 37, of Hailey in 2.38:27. Feldman related afterward, “Galpin played the teammate role to a ‘t’, and on the final climb he climbed away from the group to finish second.”

     Durance-Colnago racer Galpin, after winning Men’s Category 4 class and placing 14th overall in the Jason Broome Time Trial, placed third overall among Men’s Cat. 4 racers in the 48-mile Chicken Dinner road race and moved up to Masters A 35-plus Sunday.
