    Each year during Interbike, the city of Las Vegas hosts the Cross Vegas cyclocross race. It’s an important event for the sport’s top pros, but it’s also a big party for the spectators, who come out and drink beer while watching riders tear through grass and sand and over wooden barriers. We sent photographer Stephen Lam to capture this year’s action.
