Louisville, KY is fortunate to be home to the cyclocross venue (Eva Bandman Cyclocross Park) that hosted the 2013 World Cyclocross Championships. Storm Eva’s course designers take full advantage of the features that the world’s best pros tamed in 2013. Racers will find a road start; run-ups; sand pits; steep drops; and twisty, wooded trails.
In addition to title sponsor Papa John’s Pizza, returning race sponsors include Scheller’s Fitness and Cycling, Perelmuter & Goldberg Orthodontics, and Louisville Firefighters Local 345. In addition, Baptist Health Sports Medicine will be on hand race day to help with race-related injuries and Clarksville Schwinn will provide an on-site mechanic.
