In one of the most anticipated races of the day, Minna Atherton got it done again after being pushed hard by Kira Toussaint of Iron on the back half. Atherton’s time was off her World Record from her last meet, but was still the 4th fastest time of all-time in the world. Kira Toussaint broke her own Dutch Record with a personal best here.

Iron’s Touissant looked to challenge Atherton, which benefitted the team as her 2nd-place finish allowed Iron to take over 3rd-place in the team standings. The Centurions were up-scaled in this event, as aforementioned in the team standings, with a 5-8 finish. Energy Standard showed a brilliant consistency with both representatives finishing 3-4 and allowing maximum point advantage.
