    Background: In Poland a new scooter beat motorcycles in a cross-country race ending on rocks by the seashore.

    The course went through rough woodland trails before reaching the water's edge. Several ace track racers failed to climb steep bump-wracked trails. Those who succeeded came to grief on the rocks later.

    Yet the intruder - Poland's new Osa scooter - mastered the ups and downs of the woodland trails then successfully tackled the rocks to win.
