Video: The Redbull Foxhunt is a Unique Mountain Bike Race

Taking place in Ireland, Red Bull’s Foxhunt is one of the more unique mountain bike events you’ll ever come across. One rider – in this case former world champ Gee Atherton – serves as the “fox” while 400 other riders are “the hounds.” The goal is to chase down Atherton, and stay ahead of him for the entire race. Something that the most amateur field finds very difficult. As the race progresses, there are plenty of wipes outs, crashes, and other misadventures that come along with a pack of out of control bike riders. Does Gee survive the race and come out on top? You’ll just have to watch to find out.
