It’s not every day that a trail runner punches a tiger in the face. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s just a saucy story Nienke Brinkman is telling in this video. Madeira Island, where the Golden Trail Series stage race final was held, isn’t known for being home to tigers.

Who takes the cake in the end? You’ll have to watch to find out.
