Amazing vintage daredevils

Looking at the incredible German girls in the artistic cycling post, it made me wonder who decided to take something simple like riding a bike, and turn it into something amazing like artistic cycling… or a simple game like tennis and turn it into wing tennis!

This picture taken in 1925 shows two pioneers of extreme sports in the middle of a nail-biter at 30,000 ft above Los Angeles. Here are two other videos showcasing some of the earliest recorded amazing stuff. Look out for Alain Robert’s, the Human Spiderman’s influence.

This video is from even earlier, possibly turn of the century. Look out for early examples of artistic cycling and the little known sport of donkey wrestling!
