As if it were another World Cup event, the favorites in the category formed a leading group since the start of the race and it was soon seen that among them would be the winner.

The quintet formed by the Romanian Vlad Dascalu, the Swiss Filippo Colombo, the Danish Simon Andreassen, the German Maximilian Brandl and the Spanish Jofre Cullel, remained united and more than 40 seconds away from the rest during much of the race.


But the Romanian from the Brújula Bike Racing Team, Vlad Dascalu, has shown once again that he is at a higher level than the rest. He controlled the race at all times and in the end he increased the pace to leave everyone and reach the finish line almost 1 minute ahead from Filippo Colombo, second. The bronze medal has been for the German Maximilian Brandl.

The Spanish Jofre Cullel was in the fight for the medals almost the entire race but finally entered in eighth position.
