Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A squirrel stole the show at a cycling race in Norway when its tree-jumping antics caught the attention of spectators on the ground.

A video posted to YouTube by user Thiione shows a squirrel jumping from tree branch to tree branch over the Bergen road where the UCI Road World Championship's individual time trials for men were taking place Wednesday.

The crowd can be heard cheering for the squirrel as it makes its way across the tree tops, coordinating a call of "ooh" as the squirrel prepares to jump and cheers when the rodent successfully leaps.

The uploader said the squirrel kept the crowd "amused and enthusiastic" during the event.
