Motor Skiing Behind Porsches - World's Most Dangerous Sport in 1955

by

World's Most Dangerous Sport in 1955.

German's really new how to have a good time back in the 1950's.  Filmed in Bavaria, Germany. Skiers are towed by motorcycles and cars while being driven at great speed of up to 100 mph.  No helmets and a lot of balls....Amazingly enough the skiers are all still upright when they streak toward the finish.

It may have been the World's Most Dangerous Sport in 1955, but it's probably not considered the most dangerous sport by today's standards!  Athough, it definitely has to be one of the coolest and craziest sports ever invented.
