6 DAY BIKE RIDER (1934)
I gotta find this flick!
Found on Tracko.
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?

Real racers shave with Gillette!
« Success at a stayer match is only possible when pacer and stayer are completely attuned to each other. When shaving the unit and blade must also be one.
Therefore, use in your Gillette device only Gillette blades - the most durable and strongest in the world.
A Gillette razor and Gillette Blue Blades belong together.
A “good morning” starts with Gillette! »
