I live for the CABE
I recently acquired these from a seller in Belgium. c.1907, Major Taylor vs. Charles Van Den Born, Belgian National Champ (and later early aviation pioneer). The location is the velodrome at Bois De La Cambre, a park in Brussels. The photos were taken from the infield so they may have been taken by an official track photographer or an amateur who had access. What makes these so rare (and awesome) is that you don't see MT action shots very often. There are two in this lot, the shot of them coming out of turn four and the one of them doing a track stand (note Taylor has his right hand on the tire to steady himself). Also, the pic of him in the robe pre-race is such a great candid shot. Taylor is likely riding a Peugeot. Very excited to add these to the archive.
