A cool Northwesterly breeze ensured that the 30 riders were made to work for the whole seven miles, along with some errant livestock, kept the field alert. Nick O’Hara returning from an early season injury started to demonstrate the sort of form he was in at the start of the season filled with high expections. Nick triumphed in a respectable time of 15.47, averaging 26.6mph.

Former clubman Martin Beale representing VC ST Raphael came home fourth in 16.24.
