Biography

Pierre Georget came from a cycling family, as his father, Léon, and uncle, Émile, were both top racers. Pierre Georget's top international placements were second at the World Sprint Championships in both 1936 and 1937. He lost the 1936 title to Arie van Vliet, who also nipped him for the 1936 kilometre time trial gold medal at Berlin.

His father, Léon, was best known for winning the Bol d'Or nine times – in 1903, 1907-13, and 1919. He was a well-known six-day racer, winning a six-day in Toulouse in 1906 with his brother, Émile. Émile Georget rode a number of six-days, but had more varied palmares than his brother. He won Bordeaux-Paris in 1910 and 1912, the 1910 French National Championship, and Paris-Brest-Paris in 1911. Émile also placed third in the Tour de France in 1907 and 1911.
