In the end, Keough and Noble filled out the second and third step of the podium. Christel Ferrier-Bruneau had a fantastic race, finishing ninth as the top Canadian. The days scotching hot temperature which reached 33 C and the punishing pace, had the field strung out after just a couple of laps. With much of the field looking shelled at the finish line.
