In Category 2 Lucy McInerney fought hard to take two wins and a third place gaining an overall first in Category 2.

Warren Eve skating in Category 1, took two third places to finish overall third after a very strong performance in the 5,000mts elimination race, hot on the heels of Mike McInerney who gained first overall in Cat 1.
