No surprise in the men's competition by winning the u23 Czech Ondrej Cink, if not a second in the World Cup and won in Houffalize and Nove Mesto. Silver medal for Michiel Van Heijden (Nederlands), while the third place is Braidot Luca (Italy). 20th place for the defending champion Gerhard Kerschbaumer (bad day), while Alexander Gehbauer retire.
During the course of the second lap there was skimming the lead group and stayed in front of Cink, Braidot and Konwa, with others more detached leggermenti including the Dutchman Van Der Heijden. It was the latter that during the third round could retrieve forty seconds back on the tread and in the meantime lost Konwaa. On the last lap Cink passed with just 12" ahead of Braidot and 18" of Van Der Heijden but in last climb the dutchman pass italy rider.
In woman's race even heavy rain in the night and early morning hours, who then gave place to a hot sun and wind to a rather tense that has helped to dry out a little path 'even though some parts still appeared muddy.
Four laps, about 20 km race. Will form immediately a trio with Ferrand Prevot, Neff and Gorycka seconding the Belomoyna and the rest of the athletes and that leads into the second round. In the third round Belomoyna make a mistake and the chain gets stuck in the frame. The Ukrainian takes time to re-emit it in place, with assistance from outside the technical area, and this will be disqualified by the judges.
At last lap Neff and Gorycka attach while Ferrand Prevot is reached and surpassed by Terpstra. Victory for Neff ahead Gorycka and Terpstra. Fourth Ferrand Prevot and fifth for Belomoina (which then will be disqualified after the race).
