Participant no.91, Jean Richard, between Dreux and Paris, after some 1.150 km and more than 48 hours on the saddle. The car alongside of the rider is the famous "404" driven alternately by René Herse and his daughter Lyli since over two days: after having escorted the winners until Paris, they took the way to Brest again in order to help further team members.
