Young Mayho continued to extend his lead finishing 5 minutes ahead of second place finisher Mark Hatherley. Rounding out the top 5 were Phil Trussell, Chequan Richardson and Macio Talbot. The top female rider was Ashley Kirkpatrick, while Matthew Oliveira finished as the top Junior rider. The full results are here [PDF].
