Chris Jones, fresh from animating much of the Tour of Missouri, initiated a break with Jamey Driscoll early on and stayed away for the one-two. Euro superstars Erwin Vervecken and Christian Heule made multiple efforts to bridge the small gap alone, and even more attempts to muster a chase. Jones and Driscoll wisely kept it full gas to the end rather than worrying about the finishing order and losing their advantage. Jonathon Page took third and the podium was rounded out by some Vegas trash. Jones, on his FOCUS Mares Team, looks set to be a podium fixture this season.
