How the Race Unfolded.
Lone limit rider Peter Mayo was first off and rode to his usual pace and made it to the turn point at 25.5km with an average of 28.2kph. He was only 1 minute 20 seconds in front of Meg Parnaby, who had put in a good ride to average 30.34kph.

Second scratch were also making good time, averaging 36.35kph to the turn, and like Meg Parnaby, were up on their expected average to the turn, but the first 12 kilometres of the race had been a tail wind so good averages to the turn were to be expected.

Scratch was also up a little but not to the same degree, making it seem unlikely that they would catch the others with only 18km to go.

Parnaby caught Peter Mayo with about 10 kilometres to go, and then made for the line, with the second scratch riders still well behind, but gaining at a good rate.

With about 2 kilometres to go, it liked like Parnaby had it well sewn up, but the second scratch riders were coming fast, and Parnaby crossed the line just 9 seconds clear to take out the race.

Edwin Irvine sprinted into second place ahead of Dean Hayward, with Wayne Klauss in fourth place.

Peter Wemyss took on Sean Prins for fastest time, with Wemyss crossing first in 1 hour 9 minutes 25 seconds.
