The First Spanish Cycling Champion From Felanitx

Simón Febrer Serra (1895 – 1989) was a Spanish professional road racing cyclist. He was one of the first cycling stars in Spain. Febrer was born and bred in Felanitx. He was Spanish champion in road racing in 1915 (in Bilbao) and again in 1918 (in Seville). He also was Spanish champion in motor-paced cycling in 1914, 1915, 1916 and 1918, and runner-up in 1917. The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain, ca. 1914 (courtesy of Arxiu Pere Xamena and the photographer).
