Funny how all their first names began with M. Barring, of course, the good Count.

And of course Monsieur Monsieur le Blant.

On a more serious note, are we calling this a race per se? Rather than a reliability trial where people were just as interested (more so?) in the fastest time than in the actual "winner" - sort of like single year Les Mans in the early 20s?

M.M.Le Blant= Monsieur Maurice Le Blant, 19, rue Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, Paris.
For M.E.Le Blant Roger gave us the answer :)

I have Albert Lemaître, Pierre Gautier, E. Kraeutler, and the M. Michaud should probably read Gratien Michaux. Ernest Archdeacon was not a Frenchman, he was an American (or maybe an Englishman) living in Paris.

Ernest Archdeacon (1863-1957).
was a successful lawyer, balloonist, sportsman and founder member of the Aéro-Club de France.

Galvanised by a fear that an American and not a Frenchman would be the first to fly a practical aeroplane, in May 1903 Archdeacon set up the Aviation Committee of the Aéro-Club.

In 1904 he experimented with a number of Wright-inspired gliders in collaboration with Gabriel Voisin, but all proved unsuccessful.

Archdeacon also used his wealth to fund a number of prizes, all offered in October 1904. The Coupe Ernest Archdeacon for the first flight over 25 m (82 ft), and a cash prize of 1,500 francs for the first flight over 100 m (328 ft) were both won by Santos-Dumont in 1906. The greatest prize was the Grand Prix d'Aviation Deutsch-Archdeacon of 50,000 francs, jointly sponsored by Henri Deutsch de la Meurthe, for the first circular flight over a kilometre (1,094 yards). This prize was claimed in 1908 by Henry Farman (also ex racing driver), and on 29 May 1908 Archdeacon became the first aeroplane passenger in Europe when he made a brief hop in his company.
Archdeacon, a great patriot, was also, along with Esnault-Pelterie and Voisin, a leading sceptic of the Wrights' achievements in the period 1903-08.
