According to his obituary in L'Auto (1941-14-11, p2), Henri Brasier raced at Paris - Rouen in 1894 "sous le pseudonyme de Roger de Montais". Is it possible?

De Montais entered with the address "Beauvoir, près de Cloyes (Eure-et-Lore)", which is Département 28, while Brasier was born in Ivry-la-Bataille (according to Wikipedia), Dép. 27 (Eure) - not that far away in times when geographical mobility was limited.
