In the A/B/C&D Category race, 58 riders started and Antony Wallis (Private) went from the gun with Mark Foulds (Adalta) who joined him to create a 20 second lead over the bunch after only one lap. The pair stayed together for the next three laps but Mark Foulds could not hold the pace of Antony Wallis and he dropped back to be absorbed by the bunch.

Antony Wallis then demonstrated how strong he was by powering on to increase his lead at one time to 40 seconds. There were various attempts to pull him back but they all failed including the most serious attempt after 45 minutes lead by Chris Baldwin (Eagle), Mark Daly (ColourTech) and Mark Foulds which reduced the lead to twenty seconds.

The chase resulted in many riders being unable to stand the pace and they were dropped from the bunch. As there were so many dropped and lapped riders strung out all around the circuit, at this point many were withdrawn from the race for safety reasons. Antony Wallis held on until the finish when he had a lead of 15 seconds over second place Mark Foulds with Andy Pollintine (Dulwich) in third place.
