Magnus Ruby Bang is the first to get trough the first corner and holds the lead the whole lap, by doing so he takes the 1st lap prime. Then the speed goes down and several attacks from Johannes Killisperger and Eike Haumann are launched. The front narrows down to 5 riders. In the 5th lap, Johannes Killisperger, Eike Haumann and Magnus Ruby Bang are in front with Thue Kramp and Benjamin Ferm chasing. Eike attacks off the front again with Johannes joining Eike. However, a few laps later Johannes suffers a punkture and is forced to leave the race. By now Eike is alone in front with a solid 20 second gap. Chased by only three guys left in the field, Eike takes the midway prime and countinues straigth to the win. In the chasing group it comes to a sprint for 2nd and 3rd. Wich is taken by Thue Kramp and Magnus Ruby Bang.

In the womens race, which was simultaneously raced with the mens, Andrea Therese Kaaber and Siri Tolander fought for the victory. Around the first half of the race the to super strong riders worked together to keep the pace high. With 14 laps to go, Andrea had to let Siri’s wheel go, allowing Siri to cruise solo to the victory.
