2 Wheels Beats 4 Legs In Men's Cycling Race In Belgium

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. It was the first lap of a muddy men's cycling race in Belgium, and competitors faced an unexpected challenger.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: He's got a leash on, but he lost his owner. Going for it right now - in third place, somebody's dog.

GREENE: Somebody's dog - appeared to be a German shepherd. Riders pedaled past the dog as it tried to take a bite out of some bikes. In the end, two wheels beat four legs. The dog was eventually caught and disqualified. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
