This race started with 6 laps of a flat circuit and then once over the famous Mostacin climb followed by 3 laps of a tough course and the reverse of Mostacin with another climb thrown in before a flat run to the finish for a total of 153km. Graeme Brown won one of the 3 sprint prizes on the flat circuits. Yaroslav Popovytch took hold of the race from the first climb and opened up a minute gap from a 30 strong chase group ncluding Allan Davis. Allan attempted to cross the gap but paid for it when he was countered and dropped with a group of 10. Popovytch was eventually caught by a group of 20 at 3km to go after his 70 kilometer solo attempt. Allan came in with the next group to run 22nd.
