Watch: Thousands gather for traditional ox racing

Sharing is Caring

Haunshofen (Germany), Aug 28 (ANI): Every four years, the Bavarian town of Hanshaufen is home to the jolly traditional competition ox racing. Thousands gathered, many dressed in classic Bavarian garb including dirndl dresses and lederhosen, for the competition which has been taking place since 1983. Sixteen competitors took part this year, including a female rider for the very first time. The big lumbering beasts can move fast and it isn’t unlikely to see riders falling off their oxen or barely holding onto the saddle as they cross the finish line.
