1931 General Note: This is the first of three years where the randonneur PBP ran along side the pro race PBP. In A Short History of Paris-Brest-Paris, Bill Bryant states: "While still a very prestigious professional race, the organizers dropped the category for the unglamorous touristes-routiers. Luckily for today's randonneurs, the Audax Club Parisien stepped in and organized a 1200-kilometer brevet run alongside the race." So although these two sets of riders were riding on the same course, at more of less the same time, it may have seemed more than ever like two events, with two separate sets of results.
