One of the most wonderful races to emerge after WWII was unquestionably the Peace Race. Began in 1948, this race attracted the best amateur riders of the day. The 1954 edition, which included stages in Warsaw, Berlin and Prague, lived up to all expectations. Drawing millions of spectators to the roadside each day, the race was a showcase for the outstanding abilities of the Eastern Bloc riders. The blue jersey with the white dove was the symbol of the team leading the race. Note the bar mounted water bottles and wing-nut quick release for the hubs!
