For the second time, Bart Brentjens has won his own Bart Brentjens Challenge. In the last kilometres of the 104km mountain bike marathon, Brentjens flatted and was overtaken by his teammate Martin Kraler, who gained a minute. Yet, Brentjens regained Kraler and then beat the Austrian in the final sprint. Brentjens said, "This is the Amstel Gold Race for mountain bikers. In the sprint, I showed who was best. Kraler asked me to go together over the finish, but that’s not my mentality.”
