Video: Man versus Sheep - animal outpaces cyclist
It's no mountain goat - but creature has impressive turn of speed
It's not unusual for some of the peloton's top climbers to be referred to as 'mountain goats,' but here's something we haven't seen before - a sheep outpacing a rider on an ascent, and from a standing start too.
The rider posted it to YouTube under user name PeowPeowPeowLasers, with the briefest of descriptions - "I had a race with a sheep and lost."
Given there hardly seemed to be a sheep in Yorkshire during the Tour de France Grand Depart weekend that hadn't been dyed yellow or green or been dappled with red polka dots,maybe our wooly friend was entitled to make a run for it as a bicycled came into sight?
