Reigning US time trial champion Amber Neben, riding for the Canadian Trek Red Truck Racing team, took out the opening time trial at the Redlands Bicycle Classic on Wednesday during the opening race of the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour.

Neben covered the 11.3km course outside of Redlands in southern California in a time of 17:28. Her time was 23 seconds better than runner-up Lauren Stephens (Tibco-SVB). Stephens' teammate, Emily Newsom, was third.

Neben now leads the race heading into Thursday's second stage – a 66.5km circuit race in the city of Highland.

"One thing about getting older is I that have to manage when I'm coming on form a little bit better, which is hard for me because I'm so used to wanting to be good all year," 44-year-old Neben said. "I think I have good form and fitness generally, so today was a good indicator of where I am.

"We'll probably be more focused on stage results," she added, regarding her Trek Red Truck Racing team's goals at the race. "But at the same time, having the yellow jersey for a day at least will give them some things to think about and practise. We'll go at it one day at a time and enjoy it while we have it."
