*Nick Kaufmann was the first cyclist to organize an unofficial "world championship" in artistic cycling in 1888. After his own cycling career, the Swiss-American became an impressario who managed several troupes to perform wonderful bicycle acts, including an all-girl group called the Kaufmann's Cycling Beauties, as seen here.
