Ben Cory (Commencal) won the men's downhill race ahead of Amiel Cavalier (Giant Bicycles) and Rick Boyer (Ogio). Cory said that he didn't feel like his ride was anything special but was delighted with the win and now that he leads the downhill category of the Australian Mountain Bike series, he intends to contest the remaining three rounds in an effort to defend his lead.

In the women's race, defending champion Leigh Douglas (Tassal) won with a commanding lead. Racing on home soil, Douglas, the Canadian-born Kingston resident, was a staggering 31 seconds faster than second place finisher Emma Lewis (Cyclingo) and has cemented herself once again as the women to beat in the 2009-10 series. Third place in the women's downhill race went to Sarah Booth (Kona).
