From Miroir Sprint (France), 13 Oct 1952:

Friedrich, No. 1 of the "roule-toujours"

The championship of the newspaper couriers unrolled across the arteries of the capital Sunday. The victory was obtained by Jean Friedrich, courier for the newspaper Ce Soir, ahead of Prestat. Dupont, winner last year, tried to sprint in the end, but could not prevent the new champion from getting away.
