A new page in cycling history was written in Louisville, Kentucky at the 2013 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships when four world champions  were crowned for the first time outside of Europe in the event's 60+-year history. The noisy and happy crowd, estimated to be close to 10,000 strong, didn't let snow, freezing conditions or flooding deter their love of the sport, they cheered loudly all the racers.

Thank you Louisville Metro Parks and Louisville 2013 crew for all your hard work, thank you to the sponsors who believed, thank you to the volunteers who generously gave their time, thank you to all the competitors for racing their hearts out and thank you fans for coming out in drove and cheering so enthusiastically, so loud that it was heard in Europe!

ith the Super Bowl held Sunday afternoon, as well as a wild “foam party” rescheduled for Saturday evening, most racers said the date change would allow for a more relaxed lead-in to their off-season.

“It’s not a big deal,” said Jeremy Powers, the 2012 U.S. national champion. “I’m confident the organization and people who have monitored this know the situation, and based on everything, they know what had to be done.

“Louisville is great, the city has been incredible. The public works staff has set up a sand barricade to help keep this thing at bay through Saturday. You can control a lot of things, but Mother Nature isn’t one of them.

“And looking at the bright side, this will give everyone an extra day of recovery from the debauchery on Saturday before they have to head back to work on Monday.”
