How the Race Unfolded.
The race was an out and back course from the Stawell Racecourse to Pomonal and back.

The limit riders arrived at the turn just over 3 minutes ahead of the second scratch riders, leaving them about 30 seconds down at the turn. Scratch arrived 1 minute 30 seconds after second scratch, just over 30 seconds ahead of expected time, and putting them in the box seat to catch both the other bunches.

On the return journey scratch seemed to up the pace, while the second scratch riders slowed a little, with scratch catching them on the top of the first major hill on the return journey, about 9km from the finish, then the combined bunch caught the limit riders with about 6km to go.

In the final sprint, Peter Wemyss was too strong and took line honours from Sean Prins with Peter Parnaby third.
