Team Madison’s Dominique Mayho made a big jump off the front of the race early on and held it for quite a while. He was chased by Neil De Ste Croix and Tre-Shun Correia. The chase ultimately failed but Mayho was eventually caught by the pack. Mark Godfrey attempted a late escape but was brought back by the group. The race ended in a sprint finish with Mewett taking the spoils. The race followed a half-mile loop around Victoria park incorporating Park Road with the start / finish line outside MSA.
