Pop another shrimp on the barbie, get down to Bondi beach and crack open a Fosters as we've got the most Australian video of the year here.

Watch as this mountain biker in Esperance in Western Australia ends up racing a Kangaroo down one of his local trails.

“On a particular day a mate and I had only been on the track two minutes when we came across this little guy," he told Caters News. “We had a mini race – best encounter I’ve ever had with a roo!

“There are a number of other occasions where I have almost run over a kangaroo but the kangaroos are quite fine and just hop away."
