Sixdays Zurich 2010 Part 1 from radsportphoto.net on Vimeo.

I saw this and I thought of Ted Ernst (now in his mid 80's).  This was his profession for most of his formative years.  Back before world war II this was bigger that professional boxing, Baseball and a host of other sports.  Than it died because it was a form of betting.  They would race for what they called preams.  it was their living for six days.  What a bunch of studs I would love to see this sport come back.

  1. I have to tell you how cool Ted Ernst is. I needed the Park Tool freewheel removal socket for a Regina freewheel on a second generation Phil Wood hub. Obscure and long discontinued. He sent me one, free included shipping. He will be forever golden.
