Alex Leung was the top junior rider with a time of 20:02s, while the lone female rider Atiya Thompson clocked 39:36s.
At the conclusion of the three legs, Briton John emerged overall champion with a time of 1:02.42s, followed by Jamual John, Marlon Williams, Marcus Keiler and Balram Narine in that order. The top five Veterans were Alex Mendes, Segun Hubbard, Kwame Ridley, Lear Nunes and Jaikarran Sukhai.
