The Halloween Cross Crusade race is hands down one of the most fun races to photograph in Bend. I’ve been assigned to shoot the cyclocross event for the past few years, and I’m continually impressed with the costume creativity level. I had the day off for this year’s races but went to look for a few pictures (because how can you not?!). After walking the course for a while, I stopped when I spotted the couch shortcut – riders could take a shorter route up a hill but had to climb over a couch that probably came from the trash or on its way there, and whoever happened to be sitting on it at the moment. Definitely made for some fun frames!
