Some bad luck for Wheelers with both Paul Hart and James Jenkins involved in a crashes. Luckily neither were injured but it ended their races.

He managed to stay upright but lost contact with the group on a stretch heading into the wind and couldn't chase back in. Ben Willy and Steve Sach both finished safely in the pack.
