How the Race Unfolded.
A reasonably strong southerly dictated terms for the out and back east/west race, with the constant side wind taking its toll on all bunches except scratch, who with the addition of the "very out of form" Steve Monks, were absolutely flying. They caught the second scratch bunch about 5km after the turn, with Sean Prins putting on a special burst of speed resulting in Peter Parnaby being the sole rider to get on.

Further up the road, second limit had caught the lone limit rider Kevin Grellet with about 15km to go, but scratch were still blasting out the watts and had the lead riders in their sights all the way up the last long climb, finally overtaking them with about 8km to go.

Frank Kean led Peter Wemyss out for the sprint, with Wemyss taking the win from Kean, with Sean Prins third, just ahead of Peter Parnaby.
