The video clocks in at a lengthy 50+ minutes but, man, if there was a Pulitzer Prize for unintentionally hilarious sports journalism it would a shoo-in. If you’re short on time, we recommend skipping to the final 10 minutes in which Boyd gives the journalist a “riding lesson,” even popping him over a cross country jump or two by the end.
The grand finale is when Boyd, who can’t stop laughing by this point, jokes to the reporter that he’s going to freeze his semen before Rio as a precaution against the Zika virus… and the reporter actually believes him.
Drop what you’re doing, go watch, and Go Eventing!
