Following strict pandemic protocols, the 100km event was organized by the Department of Sports of the Lviv Region and the Lviv Bicycle Club. 

Riders faced a 25 minute time penalty if they did not wear a face mask while in the start/finish area, but on the race course masks were not required.  

Kasyanov crossed the finish line in 2:23:26, almost 3 minutes ahead of the next men’s rider, while Marta Zakharova won a 5-up field sprint to earn victory in the women’s race.
