Denmark was definitely not among the top favorites for the team race, with France and Belgium being the top choices. But these countries disappointed, and the podium was occupied by the same nations as in the individual race. Henry Hansen won the individual race by 8 minutes. Britain placed two riders in the top five, Frank Southall in second and Jack Lauterwasser in fifth, but they could not overcome Hansen’s huge margin, and Denmark won the gold medal, with Great Britain second – five minutes back.
