3 August 1960, German Democratic Republic
Cycling World Championship
design: E. Schoner

It was interesting watching the Track Cycling World Cup highlights on TV this past weekend. Several athletes mentioned that they were supported by the spectator’s cheers a lot, especially when they were almost burnt out towards their goal.  It seems that cheers make a difference to achieve good competition and new records.

This stamp is showing a lot of spectators in a velodrome – although their faces are a bit expressionless…   I featured another stamp, which is showing spectators alongside the road to support Tour de France racers – in this case, they are more animated with their arms raised.
