The closing 10 mile maintained a rapid but steady pace with any breakaway attempts closed down within a few laps. As the field entered the final few laps Tony Gibb took off and opened up a substantial gap leaving the remainder to fight for the minor places. Gibb won in 21-00 with John McClelland and George Olive the 1,2,3.
