Summary

The three greatest amateur sprint cyclists in 1900 were Léon Didier-Nauts of Belgium and France’s Ferdinand Vasserot and Albert Taillandier. Didier-Nauts had won the world championships in Paris earlier in 1900, with Vasserot third. In second at that event had been the American amateur, John Lake. Didier-Nauts did not compete at the Grand Prix de l’Exposition, but Vasserot, Taillandier and Lake did. Lake defeated Vasserot in the semi-finals. In the finals, Lake was soundly beaten by Taillandier and Fernand Sanz (FRA).
