Wooden scooters

Just found this amazing video about Filipinos who make and race wooden scooters.


Very cool, although going down that hill with no form of brakes whatever looked pretty dangerous. I ride a kick scooter, but mine has a rear brake that at least slows you down if you go faster than you want on a downhill. This was pretty interesting to me. Do they walk them back up the hills? It sounds like they were originally used to move crops downhill.
