THE annual 100-mile relay race around the bay is but five days off. Judging from the showing made by the Garden City Wheelmen in the past, they will probably carry off the honors Sunday. Captain Dermody has selected the following 10 men to represent the local wheelmen Sunday: J. Berryessa, R. Diefenbacher, S. Maggini, C. Showalter, P. Maggini, B. Murphy, W. Waible, Merle Grey, C. Burnett and W. Chaboya. All these youngsters have had previous experience in road racing. Many are known as being among the fastest amateurs on this coast.
