Saturday brought about the sixth annual "Extreme Race Day" at Canterbury Park in Minnesota. What exactly makes Extreme Race Day so "extreme" you may be asking? No, it's not skateboards and snowmobiles, but rather, racing camels and ostriches. Below you'll see the "Don't Lay an Egg Dash."
I don't know whether to be impressed that some of these guys are actually able to sit aboard a running ostrich, horrified at the thought of racing large fligtless birds for entertainment, or utterly shocked Fox hasn't televised this yet. I guess it's some combination of all three.
The track announcer and aftermath of the race is just as absurd as racing ostriches with enough bad bird puns for a lifetime. And yes, there's also an ostrich onboard camera...no comments
