“It was the thrill of risking my life that made me to take to drome
riding. I was the girl who flirts with death. From childhood I was
inspired by wanderlust. I was always alone, dreaming of adventures– how
to ride a pony out West, to follow my calling to fame. This was my
secret. I shared it with no one.” - Lillian La France
Lillian La France was one of the first, and also one of the most popular, female Wall of Death motorcycle stunt riders of the 1920s & ’30s. You can read more about her HERE. Enjoy!
