The three Velo-One riders finished strongly in the leading main group, just outside of the top 10.

Starting in the scratch group, Paul broke away from his group with two other riders, working together to pass the earlier starting groups.

A hill-top finish was contested amogn six riders with Paul finishing fourth overall and second in his group.
