2013 Cyclocross Worlds

Are you watching?

2013 CX Worlds in Louisville, KY, USA

The race is on now! Originally the Elite Womens and Mens race were planned for Sunday, but all remaining races have been moved to today (Saturday) due to expected continued flooding in Louisville, Kentucky.

Where to watch 2013 Cyclocross Worlds online (there is only one source with coverage rights by the UCI), watch the race live TODAY http://www.youtube.com/user/ucichannel

Snow covers the ground today in Louisville as Marianne Vos (Netherlands) just won the women's elite race. She is now a five-time World Champion Womens Elite CX.

The Elite Mens race is live at 2:30pm (ET) / 12:30pm (MST)

Cyclocross made headlines in the Wall Street Journal two days ago. I was happy to see this fun fun sport receiving some well-deserved recognition (just ignore the mention of the race being on Sunday), read: The Other (Cooler) Super Bowl

Thanks @fritesenmayo (and chief organizer Pigeon) and local CX friends, for the Wynkoop Brewery race viewing party today in downtown Denver. If we couldn't be in Lousiville for the live action, at least we had fun together making comments during the race.

Also did everyone see this fun video compilation of some of the falls from the 2012 Cyclocross season in Colorado? Such a great high-action season: Colorado Cyclocross Crashes 2012
