Impanis Excels!

Raymond Impanis (Bel) rode a brilliant race against a stellar field of riders. A small group escaped 25 km from the finish. Frenchmen Louison Bobet and Francois Mahe plotted to drop Impanis, but a well timed attack by Impanis foyaled the plot and managed to drop Bobet. The impressive Impanis attacked again in the closing circuits in Wetteren and rode solo to the Ronde victory. Francois Mahe could not answer and finished second.
