Rate this:
Black American cyclist, Major Taylor, winner of the 1899 World Sprint Championship, was the highest paid and most famous athlete in what was then the world's most popular and lucrative sport. Spectators packed stadiums in North America, Europe and Australasia to watch him race. In the United States, however, his white rivals' racial bigotry, hatred, threats, and dangerous and dirty riding tactics became intolerable. In Australia for the 1904 summer racing series, Taylor faced his American arch enemy, and hostilities came to a head.
