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!
