Jaime Vergara (Epm-Une) soloed to victory on the final stage of the Vuelta Independencia Nacional while race leader Nelson I. Sanchez (La Vega-Com.Nal.Energia) finished comfortably in the main group to secure overall victory.

Vergara and stage nine runner-up Alain Van Der Velde (Global Cycling) attacked with three laps to go on the 84km circuit race in Santo Domingo and held off the pursuit of the peloton through to the finish. Vergara dropped Van Der Velde on a short climb with two kilometres remaining and soloed to victory 12 seconds ahead of the Dutchman. Points classification leader Diego Milan (Aro & Pedal-Inteja) won the field sprint for third place eight seconds later.

Nelson I. Sanchez defended his leader's jersey on the final day of racing and maintained his 1:31 lead over second-placed Robigzon Oyola (Epm-Une) and 1:48 advantage over Oyola's teammate Eduard Beltran.

It was a strong effort overall by the Epm-Une riders as they had riders finish second, third and fourth on general classification plus won the best young rider classification (Eduard Beltran) and the team classification.

Alain Van Der Velde (Global Cycling) won the points classification, Addelin Cruz (Ochoa Finauto-Santiago) claimed the mountains classification while Jose Bone (Ecuador) prevailed in the sprint classification.
