1991 was PBP's centenary year. There was world wide enthusiasm, and a big bump in ridership - it was one big party. In December 2017 French rider Jean-Francois Mermet uploaded the official ACP video from the event to YouTube. Shortly after this he contacted me suggesting that I put a link in our PBP Video Archive in the PBP section of the web site. Merci Jean-Francois! Here is the direct link to the video:

We see a surprising number of British Columbia riders in this video. I've included a sampling of screen captured images here. In some images BC riders are easy to identify (above). In other cases we see just the jerseys, or we see more of the riders but they are difficult to identify.

This has got to be Manfred Kuchenmuller. This was his 1st of 6 PBP finishes...so far.
