A fast finishing Caleb Ewan beat local favourite Chris Sutton and Thomas Palmer (Drapac) to take round one of the NSW Grand Prix. In an entertaining race with numerous breakaways, it was Ewan who had the fastest legs coming on the outside of Sutton to snare a narrow win.

Mark Renshaw lead the race on the downward entry to the finishing line but saw Sutton and then Ewan surge past him as he faded to tenth. Palmer was a wheel behind Ewan and Sutton as he snuck home for third ahead of Aaron Donnelly (Huon Genesys).
