Coulter, the crack Eastern racer, rode the fifth for the Olympics and barely maintained their lead by reason of a misfortune which befell his wheel just before the start. He was obliged to borrow another, which was not suited to him, and rode his course under difficulties. The finish was almost a tie between him and the Garden City rider, Hubbard, whom he beat by a few inches, and so was given first position.
