The descent to the Cordovan capital would become key for the final outcome with 20 kilometers to finish line.

The Grenadian after seeing the kilometer 20 that was well, decided to attack and leave the group in which Ferreira was. Attack that culminated with a solo finish, and be even more leader after arriving almost three minutes ahead of the Portuguese. The podium was completed by the men of the (BUFF-Scott MTB) Muñoz and José María Sáchez.
