How the Race Unfolded.
A cool morning but beautiful sunny day with almost no wind greeted riders, and made for fast racing conditions on an already fast course. The scratch bunch on the day, made up of scratch and normally second scratch riders, rode superbly and well above their handicap mark to record 39.5kph out to the turn point, which wasn't far off the time of a normal full scratch bunch. They picked up the rest of the field with about 9km still to go, with their main powerhouse Steve Monks taking out line honours.

Winners Time
Steve Monks - 1 hour 15 minutes 33 seconds
Average speed of 39.3kph (49.5km)
