How the Race Unfolded.
It was a day where no bunch caught any other, but one got very close. Limit was always gong to be an unknown, with both riders not having raced in some time, and they went much better than expected. At the turn all bunches were up on expected handicaps due to a tail wind part of the way, but limit were one and a half kilometers per hour up, while the other bunches were one kilometer per hour or just under up on expected average.

On the return journey the two limit riders mostly maintained their advantage, only dropping abouty .2kph, while all the other bunches dropped .5 or more kilometers per hour.

Peter Mayo rode away from Ross Lumley in the final few kilometers to win easily from Lumley, who finished 45 seconds in front of third placed John McIntyre. Fourteen seconds later Edwin Irvine was first home from second scratch, 56 seconds in front of the first scratch rider, Frank Kean.
