Description

Den 21 augusti 1948 vann Sverige VM i cykel för första gången när Harry Snell på en Crescent cyklade hem guld på landsväg, 186 km, i Valkenburg, Nederländerna.
Den svenska cykeltillverkaren Crescent kallade därefter sina cyklar länge för ”världsmästarcykeln” och ramen dekorerades med världsmästar-ränderna – de ränder som finns på den speciella ”regnbågströjan” som bara världsmästare i cykel får bära, en vit tröja med tvärgående ränder i blått-rött-svart-gult-grönt.

On August 21st, 1948, Sweden won the World Champi- onship in biking for the first time. Harry Snell on his Swedish Crescent bike got his gold medal on 186 km road in Valkenburg, the Netherlands.

The Swedish Crescent bikes was after that for a long time named the World Champion bike and got decorated with the characteristic colour stripes known from the ”Rainbow jersey” the special shirt that only the World Cycling Champion is entitled to wear, a white shirt with blue-red-black-yellow-green colour stripes.
