A VERY GOOD REPRODUCTION IS AVAILABLE TO SELL; I HAD IT REPRODUCED AT A PROFESSIONAL PRINTING CO.
A 28-page (including the covers) large format Program for the 75th World Championship 6-Day race held in New York at the Madison Square Garden from September 22~28. Produced by Sports International, Inc. The dimensions of the program are 8 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches. There are reprints of newspaper articles about 6-day racing from the New york Times & Variety on the inside covers.
Thirty (30) well known international professional racers are illustrated with a short bio of each. The names read like a WHO`s WHO from the history of cycling archives; Erwin Pasek, Brian Robinson, Nando Terruzzi, Leandro Faggin, Rudi Altig, Lucien Gillen, Dominique Forlini, Ted Smith, Pat Murphy, Al Stiller and many more (see the centerfold for a complete list of the competitors).
The list of officials is another group of famous cycling personalities including; Alfred Goullet, Charles Bergna, Jackie Brennan, John `POP` Brennan, Louis Fraysse, Joe Hoviss, Bill Brennan, Jack Simes, Jr., Otto Eisele and many more. The program contains many advertisements from bicycle related companies as well as articles about bike racing today, and the history of 6-day racing. Records for past races from 1900 through 1939 are listed. This is enjoyable reading and an important piece of research material. The original Program is from the Bill Bina Collection.
