This speedy dog gave a professional mountain biker a run for his money as he overtook him and sprinted ahead during a trail run in Canada.
The video, filmed in Cumberland, British Columbia, at the end of December 2019, shows pro rider Mark Matthews speeding down a dirt trail as a dog runs ahead of him.
Amazingly, the rescue dog – called Figs – is setting the pace and 30-year-old Mark cannot catch him.
“This is my friend’s dog and it’s the only time I’ve rode with him,” said Mark.
“Usually dogs run behind the rider, but he was super fast and cut in front of me for this section of trail”.
