Ted Ernst at the 1957 Chicago 6

Action from the 1957 Chicago 6-Day. From left to right: World Sprint Champion John Tressider of Australia (#4), Dutchman Peter Post (#12), our own Ted Ernst (#14), and Emile Gosselin of Belgium (#22). Note how Ted is gloving the wheel to slow into position after having lapped the field. Ted would go on to place 2nd overall with teammate Irv Peser, behind Post and teammate Harm Smits. Picture kindly provided by Ted Ernst.
