Saturday morning’s racers had to deal with a strong northerly wind and high temperatures, and in A-Grade’s race it was a gutsy do or die late race break by Paul Anders that proved successful, narrowly holding off the bunch headed by Dom Dudkiewicz. B-Grade’s race proved similar with an 8 man break holding the bunch off, and when it came to the bell lap Ben Ryan took off, built a 5 bike length lead and just held off the bunch, headed by the ever improving sprint of Antonio Marino. C-Grade saw Gerald Lieu take the sprint and in D-Grade Chris Anderson took the bunch sprint.
