Sam Clement-Stewart put in a solid ride to take fourth spot.
John McIntosh and Rob Hooper rounded out the top half dozen.
The juniors and division 2 contested a 18km handicap event.
In a two sprint to the line, it was Ryan Gallagher who found a little bit extra to secure a great win from a gallant Jack Templeton.
