Girdlestone, who won last year, attacked with 2km remaining and only Maree followed.
Maree said he went hard to get to him and eventually bridged the gap.
“With 500m to go I wacked it and managed to get the jump on Dylan. I was amazed that I managed to stay away.”
Maree rode in solo with 10m separating him from Girdlestone.
Nick James completed the podium.
