ARCHIVE PHOTOS: Gentleman Riders

Back in the glory days of hills climbs and board tracks, men... well-dressed men, raced not for money, but for bragging rights. The way it should be. These guys knew winning was half the fight. If you didn't look good doing it, then what's the point? These are from 1900-1940. Ties, wool sweaters and leather hats at 100mph on wood. These guys are so much tougher than any of us.
