Bicycle versus horse

It’s almost Melbourne Cup time. So just for fun, here’s a little film showing what happens when a pro cyclist (two time Lanterne Rouge winner, Jimmy Capser) takes on a horse. Granted, this nag has a buggy to pull unlike the horses on Tuesday. But it’s interesting to compare the two nonetheless. Giddyup.

  1. That is an impressive sprint given the guy is riding on a dirt track, not sure I would like to be going full tilt around the corner on a loose surface where any slip means you may get run over by a horse and buggy!
