Riopel, from Lachenaie, Que., won in one minute 8.95 seconds, just ahead of Winnipeg's Derraugh, who crossed the finish line in 1:08.99. Laurent Dubreuil of Levis, Que., was third in 1:09.07.
"It went well today. I had a good start and good first lap," said Riopel. "My race yesterday (fourth in the 1,500 metres) also went well. I had some small issues I wanted to change for today to make sure that I would have my best possible result."
Brittany Schussler of Winnipeg won the women's 1,500 while Toronto's Jordan Belchos took the top spot in the men's 5,000.
Schussler won in 1:59.46 ahead of Regina's Kali Christ (1:59.63) and Calgary's Kaylin Irvine (1:59.77).
"My 1,500 today felt a lot better than my 3,000 yesterday," said Schussler. "I'm still far off my personal best (for the 1,500, 1:54.85). I would like to be faster than I am right now. It's a step in the right direction and making my way back to where I want to be."
Belchos meanwhile won the 5,000 in 6:28.45. Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., was second in 6:29.28 while Regina's Lucas Makowsky followed in 6:30.42.Suggest a correction
