Some thrillseekers are never satisfied.
This video shows Evan van der Spuy of Team Jeep South Africa getting charged by a very angry Red Hartebees antelope in South Africa. The animal plows into van der Spuy from his bike before moving on.
Funny, all those National Geographic specials never mentioned that the Red Hartebeest, an antelope-like animal found in South Africa, considers a rider on a mountain bike as a natural enemy. But the video doesn’t lie—that hartebeest has a serious hate on for that biker.
I’m opposed to opening up Eldorado Canyon Trail to Mountain Bikes. However, when I read the article titled “Boulder open space official: Return to civility in West TSA mountain bike debate” I was infuriated by the tone of some of the people opposed to mountain bikes on these trails.
