The afternoon 130 km circuit road race was animated early by a breakaway of two who gained a 15 second advantage before being caught at the 20 km mark.

At 40 km a group of 17 went away, including Ellsay and teammate Franck Lemonnier. By 50 km the group had opened a gap of 1:10. With just 20 km to go the lead group was still 10 riders but the gap to a chase group of 4 including Kowalski was shrinking. With 6 km to go the chasers caught and passed the leaders. Dylan Kowalski (Velo Club Rouen 76) attacked and went on to win solo with a gap of 9 seconds. Nigel Ellsay finished 13th, at 16 seconds back, and finished 5th overall.
