Tell us about your tractor, Yves Lampaert

Yves Lampaert races a horse-drawn sulky in an annual tradition of cyclist vs. horse racing. The two competitors are on parallel tracks, Lampaert on pavement and the horse on sand, and Lampaert, slightly ahead, is looking over at his four-legged competition as if to judge when to open his finishing sprint.

Just a small-town Belgian horse vs. cyclist race, what of it?
