How the Race Unfolded.
A small field contested the out and back course from Stawell to Pomonal.

The limit riders had only got 100m up the road when Peter Mayo punctured, which set them back somewhat. At the Pomonal turn they were down a bit on expected average, and had the second limit pair of Parnaby and McIntyre only 1 minute behind. Scratch was well ahead of scheduled having averaged 37.7 at the Pomonal turn, and looked to have the race sewn up.

Second limit caught limit with about 10 kilometers to go, at the first hill on the return journey, and then scratch caught the combined limit riders at the top of the first of the Black Range hills with about 4.5km to go.

Peter Wemyss went on to take the sprint by half a wheel from Frank Kean, with John McIntyre just beating Meg Parnaby for third place.
