The only other rider who remained clear in the jump-off was Piet Raijkmakers Jr (NED) who in the saddle of his Van Schijndel’s Dominus (by Berlin) finished in second place with 41.39 seconds. Belgium’s Christophe Vanderhasselt came in third place with Indentity Vitseroel (by Air Jordan Z) who finished with the fastest time of 38.74 seconds but with four penalties.
In fourth place it was Dutch rider Michel Hendrix with his Baileys, followed by Dutch rider Sjaak Sleiderink and Ivan R in fifth place.
