How the Race Unfolded.
The day was quite warm for the time of the year, with hardly any wind.

At the 35.5km mark, the turn at Campbells Bridge back towards Stawell, all the bunches were very close to expected race time. They stayed this wayuntil they all came together in the last two kilometres, with the lone limit rider Kevin Grellet last caught half way up the hill into Stawell, past the Golf Course, with about one kilometre to go.

There was still about 7 riders in contention at the turn onto Moonlight Street, with about 500m to go, with Frank Kean leading the charge at that stage, but over the top, where it flattens out for the final 200 metres Edwin Irvine burst free of the others, chased by Peter Wemyss, who was accompanied and hindered by much crunching as he was riding with a broken rear derailleur cage.

Irvine took the win from Peter Wemyss with Steve Monks third.
