Report about a bike race around Helmond.
Over a hundred cyclists leave Helmond. The spectators are three rows deep along the street side. After the cyclists have left Helmond, the audience gather in front of the camera and react curious and boisterous. The peloton rides through Geldrop. There already are many laggards.
The cyclists pass a chaotic checkpoint. They get a stamp, have a snack and continue the race. Some cyclists get offered a drink on a tray. Along the Zuid-Willemsvaart canal the leader waves to the camera.
The pilot Strasser flies his plane a number of times over the canal. At the finish, it is a hive of activity. The winner, J. van de Wiel, arrives with a lead of about four kilometers. On his bicycle he poses for the camera, smiling broadly. The number two, G. Raven, also appears before the camera. This competition was held in Helmond, Geldrop, Heeze and Someren on May 8, 1921.
