Into the darkness, cycling

Cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing that involves hills, rocks, mud, barriers and hairpin turns — sort of like mountain biking except it’s on a track. But that’s not enough excitement for some folks. They’ve got to do it in the dark — like these Dark Cross racers at the Red River Co-op Speedway Saturday night. The event, which was launched in 2011, also features live bands and DJs spinning tunes while the racers spin their wheels.
