D Category
Ever aggressive Andy Donaldson spent 15 laps out in front with another rider. They were pulled back in the closing laps. Steve Johnson attacked with one and a half laps to go only to be caught almost on the line where former Milk Race and pro star Bob Downs took the bunch sprint. Full results later

E Category
Leeds Mercury’s Alistair Cameron spent 10 laps out in front. But after a successful week’s racing in Belgium, Alan Kemp seemed to be in control policing most attempts at breakaways. Once Cameron was caught no other moves came to anything. Cameron escaped again towards the end but was followed by Kemp. So it was down to a bunch sprint with Kemp in command.
