    Silver medalists Kris Thoreson and Gabriele Andersen were the other local medalists in the field of 71 cyclists (40 at 30k, 23 at 20k and 8 at 10k).
    Men’s 40-44 class champion Feldman (38:10), a seven-time winner of the Union Cycliste International (UCI) Masters World Time Trial, was the clear overall winner over Sam Krieg (39:46) among the 30k racers Saturday in Canyon County.
