A man takes part in racing Pacu Jawi or &quotmud cow racing" in Padang Pajang, West Sumatra, Indonesia on Saturday, Oct 13, 2012. The Sumatran sport of Pacu Jawi is held at the end of each rice harvesting season by the Minangkabau people in West Sumatra, Indonesia. The activity sees farmers cling onto crude wooden frames attached to two cows, which they then encourage to race through a muddy paddy field. With their hands busy holding on tight, jockeys encourage their steeds to go faster by biting their tails.
