The women’s race saw a challenge between Cranfield and yesterday’s winner, Nicole Callisto in the third of their three races. With National Champion, Tanya Bailey looking for some space it was Callisto who went over the final berm and was lucky not to sustain injury on her recent knee reconstruction. Tied up in the crash was Queenslander Melissa Mankowski. Bailey continued to the line to claim second while Brisbane’s Kelly Percy placed third. After the three races however it was still Cranfield in first with Callisto making it into second spot overall Bailey's finishes gave her third overall.
The men’s race also claimed a crash victim with Adelaide’s Brian Kirkham landing heavily in the second straight. Kirkham's crash took down Brisbane’s Glen Codega. Kirkham was taken away for further medical attention to his left hand. Graves and Willers managed to stay clear while Sydney’s Alex Cameron claimed third. Local favourite Luke Madill rode into second and Kamakazi placed fifth.
In the junior men's race the domination of Adelaide's Sam Willoughby continued. Willoughby won the final and looks unbeatuer for the overall Oceania Series.
A win in the last race was not enough to secure Townsville's Rachel Bracken an overall victory with Bunbury's Lauren Bracken taking honours in the junior women.
