The Australian cyclist Clark, who recently went to Europe from America with the crack Yankee rider MaoFarland, was in fine form at Paris. The titbit of the racing programme was a triangular sprint match in which Clark met the smart French rider Dupre, and the Belgian Van den Born.
Although the Belgian won the first heat he was disqualified for boring. Dupre being awarded the verdict, Clark second. The next heat, however, saw a groat change, as, directly the bell sounded, the Australian jumped away, and although both Dupre and Van den Born caught him before the line was reached they failed to get on terms. In the third match Clark adopted the same tactics, and with his marvellous turn of speed and good inside position he got home again, the final classification reading; Clark 4 points, 1; Dupre, 5 points, 2; Van den Born, 9 points, 3.
