Breakaways ruled the day at the National Cycling League Cup finale in Atlanta on August 20. The Miami Nights won a second NCL race and, in doing so, won the series and its lucrative prize money. 

A challenging race on the women's side saw Miami miss the break of the day and was not able to sprint for the win on the final lap, but their men's team was able to make the points with two riders in a breakaway, constantly raking in points until finally, winning the last lap with Clever Martinez to secure the event.
