The rider was hurtling along a bumpy trail when the big cat appeared from nowhere and darts alongside his bike. The biker almost runs over the animal as it disappears out of shot.

The rider never takes his hand off the throttle as he speeds past the big cat, glancing back to see if the animal was following him moments later.
