October, 1932: Fernand Cornez, after a test ride on the Oscar Egg "Vélo-Fusée" (Bicycle Rocket). Unless the U.V.F. intervenes, Cornez will use the bike for his hour record attempt. http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/aldoross/pd/Cornegg.JPG.html

Fernand is the "Cornez" after whom the clips and straps were named. Anyone know if he went ahead with his record attempt?
