There was a stunning upset in the men's junior World Cup Challenge when the relatively unheralded Anton Cooper of New Zealand decisively beat favorite Jens Schuermans (Belgium).

Cooper, a first-year, 16-year-old rider who has not previously raced outside of New Zealand, took the lead on the first lap, with the only sub-14 minute lap of the race, and continued to extend his lead throughout the rest of the race, finishing 1:43 in front of Schuermans, with Pablo Rodriguez Guede (Spain) taking third, a further 14 seconds in arrears.
