World’s Most Dangerous Sport in 1955

Way back in the year of 1955, this collection of athletes decided to create a dare-devilish sport that aptly attracted the title of the “world’s most dangerous sport.”

All it took were a couple of motorcycles, cars, and willing skiers that would participate in an event on snow that reminds us a lot of solid ground water-skiing except in a racing format. The head to head competition reached speeds of over 100mph which is no joke as one weak moment could cause death.

Sure, the risk is incredibly high, but we think that this would make a heck of a spectator sport today. Could you imagine watching this go down with modern technology?

Check out the video below to see what the sport is all about. Would you be willing to slap on some skis and try it out?
