R. Hammonds

From Wooljersey


The third relay race showed hardly any difference in positions. Hammonds by fast riding brought the San Jose Road Club up two places. The leaders kept their same places, and the tail-enders theirs. Remarkably fast time was made over this relay, the slowest being 27 min. 32 sec. Lefevre, Acme, rode the best, 24 min. 39 sec., while the Garden City, Olympic and Bay City men rode in 25 minutes and a fraction. This was the fastest relay of the course, no accidents happened to any of the men, and a fine road made the riding perfect.
