How the Race Unfolded.
A very light north easterly meant a light head wind out to Navarre and a side tail back to the finish, with the wind increasing slightly but still remaining light.

The limit riders rode well out to Navarre, averaging 30.31kph, and were well ahead of the second limit riders who stuggled from the start, only managing to pull back 2 minutes of the limit riders 9.30 lead.

The second scratch riders turned at Navarre about 35 seconds down on expected time to the limit riders, and scratch came through about 55 seconds down on expected time to the bunch in front. Soon after the Navarre turn, the middle two bunches combined.

With a tail wind home, the chasing bunches had their work cut out trying to chase down the limit riders, having started slightly behind schedule at Navarre. The limit riders got up to win by 1 minute 15 seconds from the combined middle bunches, with Crystal Wemyss taking out the win from Meg Parnaby. Dean Hayward just held off Danny Monaghan for third place.

Sean Prins took out fastest race time in a very close sprint from Peter Wemyss.
