Cycling raises passions. It doesn't matter if it's a grand round, a team world championship or a local race. And it seems that this sport also transcends people, judging by the reaction of a cow that joined a cycling race in San Carlos (Costa Rica). The video has gone viral on social networks and has generated multiple comments.
In the clip, published by ITR Official, you can see how the platoon passes through a secondary road in a rural area. The cow observes the platoon and decides to join the race. She starts running and is in the wake of the cyclists, who are surprised to see the animal.
The cow is able to keep up and travels several kilometers. At the animal's insistence, one of the runners tries to stop it from continuing with them, making gestures to get it to move away from her path. The reason, the danger of not being able to control her reaction.
The situation for many was so funny that fans and media began to record the moment, which ended up being published on social networks and going viral.
Users have also not hidden their surprise and admiration for the animal's reaction. "I'm 28 years old now and this is the first time I've seen a cow run. She's so cute," says one. "They should have given the athlete cow a good prize," adds another. However, others question whether the animal ran for pleasure, but maintain that it is "scared" and that is why it "flees forward."
