Introduction 6th ISDT 1924 – Belgium

The ISDT of 1924 started at Chaudfontaine in Belgium, covered much of the country and passed into Luxembourg and Holland.

More details welcome

Ace ISDT sleuth “STB” who deserves a gold medal for the stuff he keeps digging up on the Ancient ISDT’s has done some blindingly good digging to pick up some articles from the Belgian Sports Paper ‘La Meuse’ with reports not only on the Liege Baston Liege famous cycle race but thankfully the ISDT. Although the articles are in French I am struggling to get them translated so if any francophiles here can help break this archive open contact me for copies of the material.
