Another reel of old Super 8 racing footage from Alpenrose Velodrome in the 70’s. This is coming from the same guy who shared footage of a junior Greg Lemond winning National Championship titles at this track.

This is a long long long video and I’m not saying you should watch the whole thing. I’m just posting it because I love the grainy look of the Super 8 film. It’s got such a mood and atmosphere to it that goes perfectly with the old lugged steel bicycles and spoked wheels that they are racing. Maybe a nice video to project on the wall at your next goldsprints party?
