How the Race Unfolded.
All bunches rode well out to the turn at the 25.5km mark, with limit and second scratch just a whisker down on expected average, and scratch well up, but scratch rider Steve Monks punctured soon after the turn, which slowed their return journey.

However scratch still managed to reel in second scratch soon after McCrackens Hill with about 4km to go, then catch limit with about 1km to go. Frank Kean took out line honours in the sprint, ahead of Danny Monaghan and Sean Prins.

Fastest time went to Frank Kean from Sean Prins.
