At DarkCross back in mid-September, by the time the Crooked Brothers took to the stage at 8pm for their first set, the rising energy level was already palpable. When Archangel Fireworks kicked off the B Race with a fiery display and the lasers and fire dancers got their shows going, the excitement level would have been through the roof if the Red River Co-op Speedway had a cover on it. DarkCross 2013 served up another successful night of cyclocross racing, setting a new record for a Manitoba cyclocross event with 270 racers. But this year solidified its reputation as one of the best outdoor parties on the prairies. Randy Klassen, owner of race sponsor Klassen Concrete, summed it up nicely: “Awesome time. You kids really know how to tear it up!!”

DarkCross put together this amazing video, and the contest gallery is below:
