WITH THE WHEELMEN. - San Francisco Chronicle - 05 Jan 1895, Sat - Page 12
For the third heat Blakely and Byrne, who had entered, failed to put in an appearance on time and their names were consequently scratched from the list. Fred L. Day, who was listed for the fourth heat, was transferred to the third heat. which he won after a good race with Buzard. He had several yards to spare when he crossed the line a winner. The time was 2 min. 36 3-5 sec.
In the final of the mile novice the starters were: F. Fuller, G. Fuller, Day, Decker and Benson. The riders started off as if they had only one lap to go, but after they had stretched out into single file Benson got a nasty spill, coming down head over heels from the top of the east curve. He remained seemingly unconscious for a few seconds, but when picked up by friends he said he felt all right, and walked to his dressing-room. Decker took the lead, and won easily, with Day second and G. Fuller finishing third. Time, 2:30 1-5.
