Random Act Of Sport: Mountain Bikers Outrun One Very Fast Bear

The rider was completely unaware the animal was behind him

It’s important to stay motivated when you’re exercising. A pair of mountain bikers got a high-stakes motivation after a bear attempted to chase them down.

The terrifying and surreal encounter, shown below, was captured via the helmet cam of the trailing rider, Dusan Vinzik, as he and his riding partner navigated a path on a stretch of forest in Slovakia.


The lead rider, oblivious to the pursing bear, was able to distance himself from the creature. According to Bear.org, “lean” black bears are capable of reaching speeds of 30 MPH. This bear didn’t appear to be particularly lean, so let’s cap it at 25 MPH. That’s likely around the same pace a trail-riding cyclist would maintain were they unaware that a carnivorous beast was pursuing them, so had the bear continued to give chase, this would have been a very interesting race.

The Free the Nipple movement is trying to remove the stigma on women's breasts by making it culturally acceptable and legal for women to go topless in public.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
