The “Silodrome” is a carnival sideshow attraction sometimes referred to as the “Wall of Death” – you may have seen one at a small county fair – the vertical velodromes were originally built in the countryside from old grain silos, leading to the name: silo drome.
Daredevils ride motorcycles and small cars around the sides of the Silodrome using G-forces to stay glued to the wall, often juggling, doing headstands, drinking bourbon and collecting tips from the audience as they go round.

Design + Code – Adrian Pelletier
The design of Silodrome is the work of Adrian Pelletier, the founder of Build Interactive and a hugely talented web developer/designer with a client list that includes Microsoft, Reebok, Walgreens, The Black Eyed Peas, Oracle, Liberty Mutual, Prudential and Projecturf. Adrian painstakingly restores old cars when he can find the time, so he fits very well into this gasoline and motor oil scented corner of the internet with people like us.
