Biography

In the 1920 Olympic 50 km race Piet Ikelaar protested his third place finish but without success. His rival Cyril Alden fell over the finish line ahead of him, but it was ruled that he had crossed the finish line correctly. In 1917 and 1920 Ikelaar was runner-up in the Dutch Road Championships. In 1921 he turned professional and continued racing until 1931. As a professional, Ikelaar won the national road championship in 1923-24 and finished second in 1925. For many years he held management positions with the bicycle touring club ASC De Germaan. He died at age 96.
