RACING AHEAD
Village near Lahore, Punjab


Ox racing is a popular sport in rural Punjab. It requires a pair of oxen to be tied to a wooden board on which the racer drives them around a circular course. The champion of the race usually wins a cash prize, while the loser has to surrender his prized oxen to the winner.
