RE: Excelsior racers
The Big Valve Racer picture shown, posted by Jurassic, is taken in Belgium. It is the former Racer from the "Dutch Devil" Hans Herkuleijns from Holland. In the Book American-X you can see a picture of it with Hans. It has additional stays to the rear frame section. Sometimes the frames broke because of the high g-forces reached on the tracks (Velodromes)
On the http://www.American-x.org webpage you can see some nice video of trackracing we do every year.

Who are the Excelsior riders on the other pictures?

If the text could be converted into English, I'm sure that it would become a must have for every Excelsior enthusiast.
