The pack mentality isn't for every dog.
Enthusiastic Doggo Casually Out Sprints Cyclists During Italian Bike Race
That's the story from Italy (~we think~), where a very good pup joined a bike race in progress and then promptly left the peloton in her dust with a ruthless breakaway.
Bolting pell-mell between the officials' motos, the spandex-free dog reads the fatigue on the faces of her competitors for weakness and correctly ratchets up the pace.
It's an advantage she maintains around this long, sweeping bend. Fantastic cornering FTW (For The Woofer)!
Still, like most would-be escapes in the sport, even this one is eventually reeled back in.
But not before she gives it one final dogey kick. Such determination, such bravery.
