West Fargo bike track being displaced by softball

WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A West Fargo BMX bike track is being displaced by a softball field.

WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A West Fargo BMX bike track is being displaced by a softball field.

The president of the West Fargo BMX Association says members are looking for an alternative location for a new bike track. Wayne Larson says the group doesn't have much money, and land is expensive.

The track has operated in West Fargo's South Elmwood Park for decades. The BMX association held its last race at the park last weekend. Larson says about 120 bikers use the track each week.

The city park district told the bike group three years ago that they needed to find another track. The Forum reports the district wants the land for a ball field that can also be used for flag football.
