From @noah_schutz: "These Romanian stunt men put in a long day with me, hanging from the rafters by cables and me yelling, “give me more intensity, get in there!” The language barrier made it all a bit funny. So when they had a chance to chill and channel their inner board track racer cool guy status, it must have been a great relief. I am thankful for their dedication and ability to work through the heat and pain, true professionals."

At the start of the 20th century, motorcycles and cars competed on enormous, steeply banked wooden racetracks called "motordromes." Tune in to CarStuff on @itunes podcasts to find out why these popular tracks quickly earned a much more ominous nickname: "murderdrome." #podcast #history #car #carrace #autoracing #motordrome #murderdrome #carstuffshow

I had a great time in Denver this past week and filled countless pages in my notes on the early days of motorcycling along the edge of the Rockies.
Denver, like most metropolitan cities at the turn of the 20th century has a long heritage of motorcycling. However, Denver is unique in that it was the only city in America to construct and support two full sized board track motordromes. Though the Northeast had a number of tracks in close proximity of one another, and Los Angeles technically did have three tracks but with varying shapes and sizes, the two full sized circular motordromes in Denver, Lakeside and Tuileries, became a grand experiment as to how much competition Americans could handle, and made Denver an early capital of the sport. ***Check out ArchiveMoto.com for today’s full article*** Seen here is 23 year old ginger speedster Erle Armstrong onboard his frequently victorious yellow Flying Merkel twin. The photograph was taken during Armstrong’s winning streak at the Tuileries motordrome in the summer of 1911. Posing beside Armstrong is his friend and fellow local Merkel competitor Cort Edwards with his ever-so protective Wilson flattop football helmet.
