Mike Broadwith won the opening 10 lap scratch and the 10 mile with his usual attacking style getting away on his own and time trialing to the finish. The closing 10 mile was enlivened by the Under 16 riders Michael Parry, Connor Woodford,Tom Durkin and Glen Dossett who decided that that this would be a good test of their form for the Youth Omnium event the following day. Glen took a hard earned 4th spot in the 10 mile.

The two 10 lap handicap events in which the group B senior riders were given a 260m start against the senior A riders produced two lively events – the group B riders won both events with some positive team work. A late burst by Mike Broadwith got him into third place in the race for even numbers.

Roger Woodford won the Group B 10 lap scratch and is now promoted to the A group
