Resplendent in his British national champion’s jersey, Kennaugh crossed the line solo after breaking free in the final two kilometres.
Olivier Zaugg (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Javier Moreno (Movistar) came home for second and third, 11 seconds adrift of Kennaugh.
Kennaugh missed out on a spot in Sky’s Tour de France team, despite claiming the national road race title.
The eight-stage Tour of Austria concludes on Sunday, July 13.
