Russell Crowe challenges an Australian newspaper columnist to a cycle duel after she mocked a picture of him smoking and eating on a bike ride. Read about it and view the video here.
On the down side, Russell Crowe is a smoker, which along with his bicycling is what inspired a reporter to take pot shots at him.
On the up side, it looks like he is a skilled cyclist and gave the reporter a ride she'll never forget. Both riders wore helmets. Also, it looks from the video that they were taking the lane in a crowded urban environment, demonstrating that yes, vehicular cycling is realistic. Way to go, Russell!
