The race saw excellent team dynamics and elevated speeds set by Birkirkara St Joseph and The Cyclist Cycling Club in the initial phases of the race however, race favourites Team Greens did not fail to produce another winning performance. The team led by Time Trial Champion Etienne Bonello, Jason Vella , Gerard Said and Christopher Gatt rolled smoothly along the course to stop the clock on the 56:56 mark.
