Incredible photos seem to show cyclists in space, tearing round red, rocky terrain (but they’re actually in the Chinese desert)
Are they mountain bikers from Mars? These stunning photos of mountain bikers flying through the air look as though they’ve been snapped on the Red Planet.
The incredible shots show only the silhouettes of the brave bikers as they leap through the air into the red mist.
The barren backdrop looks just like a lonely planet – as the bikers speed across the rocky terrain as though there isn’t another soul around.
But the amazing images were actually taken in the Gobi desert, in the Xinjiang province of China.
