Chris Baldwin conquered a strong men's field today in the National Time Trial Championships in Seven Springs Pennsylvania, when he powered home in an amazing time of 46 minutes 56 secondsto claim his first ever stars and stripes jersey.

Baldwin beat out top riders like Saturn's Tom Danielson, Jason McCartney, John Lieswyn (7UP-Maxxis) and Prime Alliance's Danny Pate on a very challenging 34 kilometer course. "The course was not like anyone expected," Baldwin told Cyclingnews echoing the sentiments of his fiancée and winner of the women's race Kimberley Bruckner (T-Mobile). "It was very hilly and challenging and you had to ride conservatively," said Baldwin. Although trouble with the cables on his bike may have made a conservative ride a little difficult, Baldwin didn't seem to mind. "Our mechanic Mike had to change my rear derailleur five minutes before the race. It was a good thing actually because it was funny and it made me relax. On the first climb I tried to change it down to the small ring but it wouldn't go, so I had to ride the race in the 55, maybe it helped."

On whether he expected this win Baldwin was adamant. "No, I really had no confidence before the start. I have been lacking confidence all year. I think I was just the rider who had a good day today." Baldwin was happy for his fiancée Bruckner though. "I am really proud of Kimberley. She was so nervous before the start and she worked really hard for this over the winter, it's great for her," he said.

The pro men now have a few weekends of criterium racing before they head to Philadelphia for the Wachovia Series, of which the USPRO Championships is a part, while the amateur men will race for the Elite National championships tomorrow.
