C. A. Krafts
The relay packets were exchanged with lightning rapidity here to the riders of the second ten miles, who were off and out of sight in a few seconds. Krafts, the Bay City man, rode fully up to the expectations of his club mates, and though the road was in bad shape, made the ten miles in 27 min. 12 sec., which was fastest time and brought his club up from fifth to third position. The Acmes went back one place, while the Garden Citys and Olympics still held first and second respectively. The Imperials dropped from fourth to seventh, and the Alamedas clinched their mortgage on last place.
