We’re not totally sure what’s happening here, but based on an educated guess — and confirmation by Google Translate — it appears that La Course Des Héros is meant to be a hero race. We’re also not totally convinced that Napoleon or Cleopatra were heroes, but it matters not. They both made a strong showing and gave a solid fight as they raced their way toward the finish line.

Even if it’s not nearly as, um, creative as this race, we hope your Thursday is full of heroes and entertainment. Go riding!
