Video: Runaway horse unlikely leader in Ulster cycle race

Riders competing at the inaugural North West Three Day bicycle race in and around Derry last weekend were given the fright of their lives after a huge white stallion bolted a fence to join them on the road.

Cyclists were half way through a gruelling first day heat, beginning at Foyle Arena and finishing in the hilly Campsy area of the city, when the incident occurred on an unnamed road between Raphoe and St Johnston in County Donegal.

Sports cameraman Jonny Collins was on hand to capture the dramatic events as they unfolded, and kept his camera rolling as the horse continued to gallop towards him and his colleagues a quarter of a mile further along the route.
