When you go out with your friends to take a training bike ride on the road you expect to see vehicles passing you by, other people doing the same thing as you, maybe some birds or small animals running alongside the road, but the last thing you expect to see is an animal chasing you with the speed of light.

That’s what happened to a group of professional cyclists that were doing their standard training routine around Cape Town, South Africa, following the Cape Argus racing course with a detour to Cape of Good Hope. On March 5, 2016 they took the road through the national park which is quiet and a little deserted. Nothing unusual to be expected.

But then all of a sudden the last guy in the group heard a noise on his left and saw a big ostrich in the bush, most likely a female. In a second her friend jumped from the left and started chasing the cyclists! Obviously they were trying to hit on this lady, so her jealous partner started running after them. There is no way he will let them get away! What a disrespect for his princess...

The guy who was filming the video, Oleksiy Mishchenko, was just following behind almost falling of his bike from laughter, still not believing how his friends got into trouble just for passing trough what obviously was this ostrich’s territory.

"The creature had no problem to keep up at 50km/h! Luckily it left us alone because we were about to run out of the road, at it is a dead end at the Cape of Good Hope." says Oleksiy.

So guys, when you go out training in the South Africa wild be more careful where you look at. This time you saved your bottoms, we’ll see what happens next time.
