It was a grey overcast day with a slight breeze in the morning for the ITT, but by 2pm and the start of the Graded scratch races a few spots of rain began to fall, increasing to a drizzle at the finish. The total entries for the graded scratch races was well down on Saturday. Leongatha had 6 riders competing, including Ronald Purtle, Clem Fries and Brett Franklin riding A grade. In B grade Kevin Feely, C grade Neil White and Phil Hanley. A & B grades started together as did C & D. A trio of Seight team riders broke away from the A grade bunch, maintaining the break to the finish. The other combined groups stayed together until the sprint finish.
