As with the 1967 Tour de Graceada, the person who took the only pictures I have
of this race (my Dad?) focused on me to the detriment of a balanced view of the
race. The Junior race was completely ignored, and the only Roadman visible in any
of the pictures is me. What can I say? These are all the pictures I have got.
This is the first picture taken of the race, and it is of me (David Steffen.)
I am by myself and I am obviously pushing hard. Am I trying to rejoin the
pack? This picture is taken near the start/finish line.
I would have said that this was the start of the race, but unless the
processor mis-numbered the slides, that cannot be. In any case,
here I am with a group of riders. I am the rider in the upper right
of the picture.
I am the third rider in this group of four.
A picture of three cyclists, none of whom I know.
I am the last rider in this group of three. This and the previous
two pictures are taken at the first of four corners on this criterium
This is the only picture not from the same set as the rest. It was taken
by a friend of my sister and for decades, I had no idea it existed. Recently
I have become Facebook Friends with this person and she shared it with be,
believing it to be a picture of me (it's not.) It is a picture of the winner
of the Senior race, whose name I do not know, the same person shown in the
The unknown winner of the Senior division of the 1968 Tour de Graceada.
