Back of 1961 pin

The 1961 pins comes courtesy of Dutch rider Ben Van Kasteren.
Thanks to Alain Collongues for helping to facilitate this.

 

Ben Van Kasteren was one of the early finishers in 1961 despite having the wrong gear ratios and only ordinary walking shoes. He is currently (2009) researching the strong participation of Dutch riders in the 1956 PBP.
