Racing dirt bikes on donkeys

How’s this for a whacky dirt bike race? In addition to tackling the steep descents, precipitous single track atop seaside cliffs and narrow alleyways of a mountaintop Greek village, Donkey Cross racers also had to complete a portion of the event mounted sidesaddle on, well, donkeys. Apparently the biggest problem was coaxing go out of the animals, only nine of the 25 entrants were able to complete the race within the 50-minute limit.
