How the Race Unfolded.
The limit riders rode strongly from the start and by halfway were well ahead of their expected average, clocking 32.2kph to the turn. The mid field bunch rode well but were slightly down at the turn, while scratch were showing signs of their old form and had averaged 39kph at the turn.

On the return journey scratch caught second scratch with about 7km to go, but limit was still going strongly and had a clear lead with 3 kilometers to go. Terri Clarke took out the sprint and her first race win from Kevin Grellet and Crystal Wemyss, with Peter Wemyss taking out fastest race time, finishing approximately a minute and a half later.
