Duel in the turn

Bathed in the violent glare of the spotlights which pick them out as they battle wheel to wheel, two cyclists are caught at a climactic moment of the race. Theo l'Herminez of Holland painted them for a competition sponsored by Prince Bernhard prior to the 1956 Olympic Games. Almost a forgotten sport in America, bicycle races will be revived this month when the first six-day race since 1948 will be staged in New York.
