Video: Stray dog joins 1,700km cycle race across China
Cyclist now hopes to adopt dog
A STRAY dog has completed a 1,700km journey across China after joining a cycle race from Sichuan province to Tibet.
The dog, nicknamed Xiaosa, joined the cyclists after one of them gave him food.
He ran with them for 20 days, covering up to 60km a day and climbing 12 mountains.
Cyclist Xiao Yong started a blog about Xiaosa’s adventures, which had attracted around 40,000 fans by the end of the race.
Yong now hopes to adopt Xiaosa.
