Awesome Peregrine Downhill Race

What happens when you pair a mountain bike racer with a peregrine falcon?

Red Bull sponsored this contest in which World Cup downhill champion Gee Atherton placed a lure on his helmet (and his back) and sped down a mountain with a falconer's peregrine in pursuit.  Both the biker and the peregrine wore cameras.

Look at that bird go!  Wow!
