Bicycle racers crisscross North Carolina from September to January racing bikes in a sport known as Cyclo-Cross. Originating in France in the early 1900s, racers compete on a short course, with multiple laps through parks, fields, woods, mud, rain and snow.
The class used Nikon and Canon dSLR cameras, Sony mirrorless cameras, Canon cinema cameras, GoPro point of view cameras, a drone and even an iPhone to capture the action.
