Drag races push their bikes over finish line

Posted at 4:11 AM, Mar 01, 2016

Two professional drag racers were forced to use leg power to push their motorcycles over the finish line at a race in the Australian city of Perth.

In what is being billed as one of the most bizarre drag races in history, the two riders stalled their massive motorcycles almost at the starter line. Rather than give up, the riders dismounted and pushed their lifeless bikes, worth in the region of $100,000 each, toward the finish line.

Much to the amusement of commentators and spectators, Maurice Allen, whose bike stalled a little farther down the track, pushed his bike across the finish just ahead of Ryan Learmonth.
