It was a stroll in the park for Carolin Schiff (Felt/SDG/Spy/IRT), easily beating second place Emily Georgeson (Helen’s/Cannondale) by over three minutes. Amanda Schaper (Ritte CXTeam) rolled in after to fill the final podium spot.
Unlike the woman’s race, the men fought it out until the end. Brent Prenzlow (Celo Pacific) and Brandon Gritters (Rock N Road) broke away from the rest of the field and when Brent was relegated for a sprint violation, Brandon ended up with the win. Chris Jackson (Castex Racing PB/ Felt) finished third.
