SLIDESHOW: Spain's Jose Antonio Hermida — who crashed at least once, with pre-race favorite Julien Absalon on lap 1, and was as far back as 10th at one point — powered to an impressive win, handily holding off a late challenge from the Czech Republic's Jaroslav Kulhavy and South Africa's Burry Stander.
