Camel Racing 

Take a look at this interesting video clip, posted by bennihana79, showing the centuries old sport of camel racing in Abu Dhabi.

Since 2005, the sport has a modern twist and uses small radio-controlled robot jockeys. The robots have replaced the small children who traditionally rode the camels as they raced at up to 30km/h; that's a long way down at that speed and has to rate as an extreme sport! I like the 4x4s racing around the track to keep up with the camels. And what's the deal with the two guys who decided to give their camel a head start?
