  • Short Summary

    Cyclists finish a massive 6,000 mile ride with a final stage in Paris.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "France. Cyclists 'Grand Prix'. Leducq - sprints home to win after 6,000 miles round France! The last stage, there are 8, is from Geneva to Paris."

    Paris, France.

    Shots of cyclists as they ride across a bridge over the River Seine. People have come out to watch the race. The riders swing into a Velodrome to sprint the last few metres of the race. The grandstand is filled with crowds.

    Shot of two of the riders - presumably one of them is Leducq the winner - with well wishes. Both the cyclists are very dirty.

    The winner rides a lap of honour around the track. The winning team also take a spin.

    N.B. Presumably this is the Tour De France - it certainly sounds a gruelling.
