Horse Enters Cycle Race

Here's a hilarious video of a horse that decided to join in a professional cycle race (the 1997 Criterium International, near Toulouse) around 20km from the finish.

It is impressive and thankful how neither the riders or the horse got spooked. This could have caused a pile-up, but instead turned out to be an equine romp with a happy ending. One person posted a funny comment:

The way he's so revved up, it's like he's thinking 'There those things go again, just like last year. That's it, I'm going for it, I'll race ya.
