Alcyon Star Keeps His Promise

The oldest of the famous Belgian Buysse family, Marcel won the second edition of the Tour of Flanders. Marcel started the race without the permission of his Alcyon team, but after making a promise to the promoter Buysse came to the start line in Gent. Marcel rode strongly away from the remaining peloton to win the second Ronde van Vlaanderen.
