    Check out how the sidewalls of the tyres are taped to the wheels.

    Best thing they ever did was kick that corrupt anachorism of an event out of the World Championships.

    Yep....unless you were Belgian, German or Danish it was a complete mystery of an event. You know those ancient BMW's that the pacers ride virtually standing up have no mufflers? So it's not only a 74kmh average, but it's deafening as well!

    No mystery at all. Pay off the oppositions moto riders - you win.

    Exactly. The old man was at the worlds in 93 when one of those big suckers crashed. Back wheel spinning, motor still going, half the track chewed up (took an hour to repair), greasy looking moto rider with 70's porno moustache sprawled out on the ground - the whole thing looked unprofessional. Dad and his mate had passes to the centre of the track - his mate actually switched the thing off before it killed someone.

    i just love how blatantly rigged it is.

    plus. it is all old racers driving those things anyways....

    derny races are exciting...but they are nothing compared to stayers racing.

    Hi,
    I am glad you enjoyed yourself

    *STAYER - used from around 1894 to describe the bicycle racer who competed in paced
    (human and motor) events, and was able to 'stay' at high speed for long periods.

    The sport has moved on and the above event was not blatantly rigged as you point out!

    Yeah, some seems to know it all.
    Don't tell this to Danny Clark - 3 times world champion !!!!!!!!!!!! and winner of several other medals in motorpaced races.

    In the first place you have to follow the motor with a speed of 65 till 75 km/hr, in a race of 60 minutes, pushing a gear of 65, 66, 67, 68 or more x 14, 15 or 16 sprockets.

    Umm, what is your point? The stayer event was discontinued as a world championship event because the UCI felt it was corrupt, anachoristic and an embarrassment. Posting pics of Australians who won rainbow jerseys in that event does not change that fact, even though the demi-fond was always widely recognised as being an extremely tough and highly skilled discipline.

    Ask Danny Clark (who lived in Belgium for 20 years BTW) about some of the stayer WC's he didn't win.

    Thanks for posting those great old pictures and the web links, they are excellent!
