They completed the stage in a time of 3:06:33.
Robert Cragg and Charles Mcfall (Team SALiRE) claimed second in the stage, while Dwain Butler and Rudi Pollard (Team GRW-LCC) finished third.
“We had a good stage. We started with everyone and stayed in the mix. At the first climb we pulled away and opened a lead, but then my bike punctured,” said Klerck.
“We had to fight really hard to catch the guys again. On the fast downhill Tyson here (referring to Murray) put the hammer down. The trails are really phenomenal. Finishing first at W2W is massive for me.”
