Cameron Archibald won by over a minute in the u16s, Una Morrice finishing with a similar margin over 2nd place in the girls.

The event again offered a Come and Try element with over 20 riders racing for the first time in a 30 minute beginners race. In the open B Race, Chris Stewart of Stepping Stanes finished 4 and a half minutes up on 2nd place. Suzy Drummond was the top placed female rider. The A race saw mechanicals play a major part, Harry McGarvie led from the off but had to withdraw after 3 laps, Sean Gordon of EKRC suffering a similar fate a lap later. John MacKenzie of the Albannach moved into 1st place after McGarvie's withdrawal, and held that position all the way to the finish line. Team mate Niall Shannon came in 2nd with Cairngorm CC rider Kyle Beattie rounding off the A Race mens podium. Mieke Kalmijn despite being the only female entrant, rode well to earn her place on the top step of the women's podium.
