B grade were next to finish having ridden 45 minutes plus a lap at a blistering pace. Jackson Brown continued his winning ways with a clear win from Saul Hart and John Buonvecchi. This win puts Brown into a good challenging position for the Crit Rider of the Year competition.
C Grade (40 minutes riding) was another fast race with all the riders who completed the race sticking together in a group until the final lap. The final sprint decided the order with Brad Gildersleeve, John Bouwknegt and Javier Chee taking the first three places.
The E grade event was also unusually rapid with a break of three getting away early on and gaining half a lap on the field. This breakaway group then broke up with the three riders, Matthew Beecroft, junior Kyle Nankivell and Mark Glorie going on to complete the race in that order. Beecroft lapped the main field at one lap to go.
