Watch Dirt Bikers Get A Bit Too Close To Nature

The riders narrowly avoid a big, bounding bear.

Isn't dirt biking dangerous enough?

The duo were driving down a track near Lake Ingozero in northwestern Russia when the beast suddenly bounded into their path.

They slowed down as it sprinted across and ran off into nearby woodland. It appeared oblivious to the riders.

It's unclear exactly when the footage was filmed, but similar video emerged from Thailand last week.

A motorcyclist was forced to swerve as an Asiatic black bear ran out into the road near the eastern city of Nakhon Ratchasima.
