How the Race Unfolded.
A strong almost southerly made conditions tough for the small field, but lone rider Kevin Grellet battled on and nearly made it to the finish, only getting caught about 3km from the line.

Scratch picked up second scratch with about 5km to go, and then caught second limit riders Heard and Hayward near the top of the first hill into Stawell, with about 800m to go.

Frank Kean got a good break up the last climb to the line, and looked an almost certain winner, but the last 200m flattened out and allowed the power of Drew Heard to come into play, with Heard putting in a desparate last minute charge to just edge out Kean right on the line, to win by perhaps a tyre width.

Drew Heard - 1 hour 29 minutes 05 seconds
Average speed of 32.34kph

Fastest Time
Frank Kean - 1 hour 22 minutes 40 seconds
