American Tom Zirbel finished fourth at the World Championship time trial on Thursday in Mendrisio, Switzerland. He set the fastest times checks and topped the provisional leader board for much of the duration of the race until Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland) led the top three into the finish.

The fourth place at worlds ended Zirbel's season, and he is looking forward to resting at home. Next year he will take a step up, from a Continental squad to a ProTour team in Garmin-Slipstream. He will race along side David Millar, Wiggins and Tyler Farrar.
