The beginning of the stage was relatively flat and very fast. On the climbs Allyson Gillard, Dafne Theroux-Izquierdo and Erin Donohue were very active but didn't get away. Team CHCH of GP de Rimouski winner Donohue and Madeleine McConnell controlled the stage and reduced the bunch to just 27 riders. In this group cadets Claire van Ekdom and the 14 year old Marta Morris, the youngest rider in the bunch, both from JETCycling impressed by battling with the juniors in front of the race. This resulted in a solid one, two in the cadets race.

In the last 15 km of the race Allyson Gillard tried again to break clear on one of the climbs but was reeled in before the last 8 descending kilometers to the finish. Labrie took a convincing win followed by Gibson, Elbers, Van Ekdom and Bruneau.
