With 38 laps completed, and a total of 380 km and 23 hours and 48 minutes in the saddle, Cory finished with a one-lap lead over the seven-time world champion from Australia, Jason English (Pivot Jetblack Fizo Team) and a two-lap lead over American rider Josh Tostado.  Local rider Gaia Ravaioli of Italy took the women's title.  Approximately 300 riders from 30 countries took part in the event, held over June 3-4.

"I come from the sport of hockey," said Wallace, "where the roar of spectators and crowd is a big thing. Racing here in Finale has been really thrilling; the enthusiasm of the people along the race course added strong motivation. I had a relaxed start and, until the air temperature fell, I paced myself. Legs were good; as soon as some clouds closed in and it got dark I launched my attack and started increasing my speed."
