Seconds year's Junior Viennet took the hole shot. The winner of the first World Cup in Treviso immediately took a lead of over ten seconds on a chasing group with Laurens Sweeck (Belgium), Michiel van der Heijden (The Netherlands) and Mike Teunissen (The Netherlands).

After several laps Sweeck dropped the two Dutch riders, came closer to Viennet, but couldn't bridge up to the French rider. For Viennet it's his first international title in his career.

Viennet said "My season is already a success with this jersey. The Europeans were not my main target, that will be the World Championships in Tabor."
