Brigitte Beaudy won the Pro Master women’s race.

Peter Doucet topped the Pro Senior men’s race, beating out top US skaters on his way to the top of the podium. Doucet was involved in a number of breakaways.

In the Pro Senior women’s race, Morgane Echardour came about 1/2 a skate shy of stepping on the 3rd step of the podium. Echardour drove a hard pace for the women, causing many skaters to drop out of the lead group. However, Echardour came short in the sprint, settling for 4th place.
