Ferris and his competitors overcame less than ideal cold and snowy conditions, racing through pavement, packed snow, ice, mud and water.

Despite the conditions, Ferris was able to close the gap while racing in the mud, passing leader George Campbell and maintaining the lead throughout the final paved stage of the race.

With a victory in the final race, Ferris won two stages in the Roubaix Cup, securing him 13.5 points and first place overall. Gamble, who finished second, ended the event with 11.5 points and third placed Gary Hilderman finishing with 6.5 points.
