Motordrome Early Boardtrack Video

I stumbled across this video of early boardtrack racers circa 1900.

These were some hard men though some look young enough to be unfamiliar with a razor.

Most of the tracks were gone by the 1920’s due to public outcry over the death and dismemberment of riders and spectators alike.

Have a look at some seriously treacherous machinery and the heroes that rode them.
