September 26/11 10:02 am - Albert Coulier Memorial at FCV

Posted by Editoress on 09/26/11

3 Day Memorial Race in honour of Tillsonburg resident Albert Coulier at London's Forest City Velodrome



Salute: When a six day rider retired, the current field would salute while the rider lapped the track. When a rider passed away, the riders salute and spin their wheel in a last lap


Day 3, the last day, started right where day 2 left off - fast and furious battles between teams in both divisions of the madison race.
