Much? They are pretty....
Not surprisingly, board track racing was incredibly dangerous often as famous for its mortality rate as it was for its winning riders.
I remember reading an article (perhaps on wikipedia) about board track races and how pretty much every event featured the deaths of either racers or spectators, but that the race's popularity finally wained as it was "perceived to be dangerous". No shit!
My dad owned a cyclone board track racer. I think it was a 1918ish. He sold it to an American collector in 1998 much to my dismay. The sound of it made your teeth vibrate.
nope, this doesn't look dangerous at all!!!
that wikipedia article is brilliant. joiners fixing the boards while the race was on!? were people just a bit more mental in the olden days?
