The conditions at Dunlop Road were ideal for racing, not too warm and little wind. A big field filled the A grade teams race and this made for high speed and many attacks.
The other grades were also well subscribed and hotly contested with attempts to get away in every grade being shut down by individuals or by bunches countering the attacks. From the sidelines it was entertaining and clearly enjoyed by the combatants.
