In Women's race, Nikki Mocke, just a few months after giving birth to her son, claimed title by seconds ahead of Michele Eray, with Michelle Eder Burn taking bronze. Both Mocke and Eray paired next day for the doubles and easily got victory with more than 3 minutes from Michelle Eder Burn and Danica Bartho, who were silver in a very closed final with Kim and Eloyse van Gysen, finally in bronze.
In the Men's doubles, Jasper and Dawid Mocke (who got the world series singles title the day before, after a succesful year racing around the world), took revenge by having a great victory after pushing hard from the very start of the race. Thjey didn't want to give a chance to their rivals and only Hank McGregor and Grant van der Walt showed determination enough to follow them, but finally had to give up in a close final kilometre after some great runs of the Mockes on the great swells the South Easterly was offering.
