    Quirky stuff - probably designed for children - motorcycle stunts and bob sleigh racing.

  • Description

    Motorcycle riders race around a very rough track. Spectacular crashes and accidents. Stunt motorcyclists. Two men perform acrobatics suspended from a ladder which is in turn attached to a motorcycle on a tightrope. The tightrope is suspended over a river, sea or lake. Shots of the crowd looking up.

    Bob sleigh race. Several competitors are featured. A Red Cross stretcher on a sledge is taken to one accident victim.
