Summary

Arie van Vliet (NED) had been second in the sprint at the 1934 and 1935 World Championships. The day before this event, he had placed second again, to Germany’s Toni Merkens in a controversial final. Merkens did not compete in the time trial, and van Vliet won gold, leading France’s Pierre Georget by 8/10th’s of a second. At the 1936 World Championships, van Vliet and Georget also finished 1-2, in that order, in the match sprint. Georget would again finish second in the sprint at the 1937 World Championships.
