How the Race Unfolded.
Virtually no wind made for good racing conditions, and John McIntyre took full advantage to average 30.5kph to the turn after 25.5km, with 18km still to go. Second scratch were a little down, averaging 33.5kph to the turn while scratch were doing well with an average of 39.5kph.

McIntyre turned with a good lead over second scratch, who were still 6 minutes down and had no hope of catching him. Scratch were down 10 minutes of the original 21min 30sec, so a little down on where they needed to be to catch McIntyre before the finish. It was up to who could maintain their speed over the final 18kms. As it turned out, scratch caught second scratch with about 5km to go, but McIntyre only slowed slightly to an overall average of 30.2kph, and took out the race from Shaun Blackie who also recorded fastest race time. Frank Kean finished third ahead of Wayne Klauss.
