After 90 minutes of racing in Boise, Idaho, it would be an aggressive V Australia team that would take not only the win, but finish three riders in the top five, including taking the top two podium spots. Jonathan Cantwell, last year's runner-up to teammate Ben Kersten, took first, while Kersten edged out Ricky Escuela (Full Circle Racing) for second.
