This is the 40-page Official Program for the 1956 USA OLYMPIC TEAM TRIALS. The cycling Trials took place on September 14-17 in the San Francisco Bay area. This Program includes several different sports including cycling. The dimensions are 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. When time permits I plan to scan some additional pages and mention the names of the people contained therein. See the picture gallery of pages relating to cycling.
