Wildlife to add extra risk to an already gnarly run
Report of dry grass blaze started by biker's brake
Among the challenges you don’t want on a downhill mountain bike run is a brown bear charging at you – but that’s what happened to this rider.
We’ve seen similar videos before, with the bear’s charge typically triggered by a sow looking to protect its young, and previous films always from the US or Canada.
This footage, however, was shot in Slovakia, so even if you’re in Europe, as the man in Hill Street Blues said, “Be careful out there.”
Yeah, showing our age.
