The Dutch­man, nick­named the Gen­tle Gi­ant for his smooth style, led from start to fin­ish, win­ning by 4.5s from Kenny Roberts. It was a poor meet­ing for Barry Sheene. The Brit had a bad start but sliced through the field and over­took Roberts for sec­ond place be­fore crank fail­ure ended his run on the Heron Suzuki.
