The course is one of the more picturesque in the New Forest, taking in Wilverley Plain, Brockenhurst, Rhinefield and Burley en route. Club secretary Stewart Ward was in dominant form finishing the course in respectable 1:04:31, ahead of the previously dominant Nick Buck in 1:06:50.

Nick Austin representing Sotonia CC, came home in the fastest time overall in 1:02:05 from Matt Dixon riding for Soton Tri Club in 1:04:11 and Paul Lockyer (DH Cycles)made up the top three in 1:05:57.
