Downhill Mountain Bikers Have Close Encounter With Bear

Close encounter with giant bear caught on video during trail run.

Bikers of all types have an entire park in Slovakia on which to practice their skills. Mountain bikers, in particular, have a number of trails they can explore and kick up dirt on. And two such bikers recently got the scare of a lifetime while making their way down a trail, single-file.

As is evident from the footage above, one biker is filming the other on a relatively stress-free run, when a giant, burly, hairy bear flies into the frame. Check out the harrowing footage.
