Dominguez's wins bookended the inaugural Tour of Missouri while teammate Justin England bookended the Tour in a different way by finishing in the honored last place. Team Slipstream locked up the Team classificiation in a sign that they will be the next USA team to dominate on North American soil.

Brad Huff crashed in the finish but was able to ride across the line. You can just make out him on the ground behind Dominguez while his bike flies off to the left.
