THE INTERNATIONAL SIX DAYS
THE results of the ” International ” were, to say the least of it, disappointing, for Italy retained the Trophy and Holland won the “Vase.” In neither case, even, did British teams figure as runners-up.
An analysis of the gold medal awards provides equally -dismal reading—Italy 21 gold medals out of 37 starters (57 per cent.) and Britain 12 out of 27 (44 per cent.). And this in a type of trial in which we have always considered ourselves pre-eminent !
A close examination of the results, however, shows that there are bright spots. Several of the Italians, for instance, used British machines, an Anel Four, a P. & M. and three Triumphs being included in the lists ot ” Italy’s successes,” the three latter also winning a Manufacturers’ Team Prize for Great Britain.
It is often said that one learns more from failure than from success and it is to be hoped that the defeat of British riders in the year’s most important trial will benefit them next year.
