Giraffe joins cyclists in bike race

This is the extraordinary moment an enthusiastic giraffe darted out of the bush to join in with a group of cyclists taking part in a mountain bike race in South Africa. The cyclists looked over their shoulders, shocked by the unexpected competitor who had joined them in the Cape Pioneer Trek. The incredible moment was caught on camera by Zoon Cronje who was taking aerial shots of the race from a helicopter ‘There were three giraffes and they probably got spooked by the sound of the mountain bikes passing nearby but one of them decided to join in. Clearly not wanting to finish last, the competitive giraffe chased after the cyclists and started running alongside them.” The competitive giraffe later abandoned the race.
