  • Description

    The Fifth Archer Grand Prix - a 105 mile road race for top amateur cyclists - was won by British Olympic 'hope' W.Holmes, in 4 1/4 hours, Mar 27.

    Fifty-eight riders from seven countries battled through strong, cold winds across the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, north-west of London. The Lead changed hands repeatedly, but three Englishmen - Holmes, Pound, and Haskell, - were first to cross the finishing line. To Pound especially, the Chilterns must have seemed child's play; he was nominated "King of the Mountains" for his excellent performances in hilly terrain on the Warsaw - Prague Race, one of Europe's most gruelling circuits.
