Bicyclist racing with train -- dead!

A man died on his bicycle Saturday night when he tried to beat a train to a railroad crossing and was rammed by the locomotive, a law enforcement official said.

Guy Merkle, 39, was ridding his green Mongoose bicycle south on North Dixie Highway toward the rail crossing at East Oakland Park Boulevard, said Liz Calzadilla-Fiallo, of the Broward Sheriff's Office.
