Starting and finishing east of Rudston, the Octon 13.7 was a straightforward out and back to Octon roundabout.

Matt Pilling just had the edge on Seb Pickard in their see-saw battle as Adam Yates produced the fastest time in Division Two. First home in Division Three was Kevin Helliwell who paced his ride better than many of his more experienced rivals.
