How the Race Unfolded.
With some out of form riders coming back after not racing for a time, the race was always going to be difficult to handicap, and that proved to be the case, with the two middle bunches both performing below expectation.

The limit riders of Mayo and Grellet rode well to the turn point at Landsborough West, having averaged 28.7kph. Both of the next two bunches were below expected times, with second limit averaging 30.38kph and second scratch averaging 33kph. Scratch was slightly up on expected time and averaged 36.56kph.

On the return journey scratch caught second scratch on the first long hill, with about 14km to go, then second limit just after the Joel South turn, with about 10km to go.

Scratch finally reeled in the limit riders with 1km to go, with Frank Kean going on to take out the race with Peter Wemyss second and Edwin Irvine coming in ahead of Peter Mayo for third.
