Louis Bastien had won the world championship earlier in the year in the motor-paced 100 km. event on the track at Parc de Prince in Paris. He was the heavy favorite and he took the lead immediately as the race started. John Lake and Lloyd Hildebrand were felt to be his biggest challengers and they led the pursuit. Lake eventually dropped out and Bastien won easily. Bastien’s splits were as follows: 10 km. – 10:04.6; 20 km. – 20:28.0. The top four finishers received art objects valued at, respectively, 400, 300, 200, and 100 French francs.
