It was the first time Slavik has won the race on his fourth time of trying. He said: "I’m stoked. It was a great experience to race against these riders in this beautiful location. I would definitely come next year and I would tell other International riders to come and live this event".
His time of 2:48.48 on the 1.8km course was enough to beat out Bernard Kerr into second (2:50.56) and local favourite Pedro Ferreira (2:52:52) into third.
