Hi Angel,

No, I didn't, simply because I didn't know! Mostly, the issue features an interview with a lady who is 91, continues to ride. She toured all over Europe in the 1930s and 1940s, won the Poly de Chanteloup hillclimb race on a mixed tandem during WW II, etc. There was a book review of Beryl Burton's autobiography, a lovely René Herse bike owned by a woman and a few other things. (Table of contents is on the VBQ web site, together with photos and other things. It's been updated recently...)

If anybody has info on the Giro, please forward it.
