Let’s Hear It For the Home Team
FEB 1, 2013, LOUISVILLE, KY. By Phil Beckman/PB Creative — In the event that Evan Bandman Park doesn’t slide into the Ohio River in the next 24 hours, it’s going to be a huge day tomorrow at the 2013 UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships in Louisville.
All four elite classes are now scheduled to hit the frozen tundra on Saturday, Feb. 2, due to dire predictions from the weather geeks that the facility may be flooded on Sunday.
Weather or not, it’s a mammoth day for U.S. cyclocross enthusiasts and American cycling in general — the first time this prestigious event has taken place on home soil (or anywhere outside of Europe, for that matter.) With that in mind, let’s wave our flag like crazed Belgians for these homegrown heroes:
Jeremy Powers, Ryan Trebon, Tim Johnson, Jonathan Page, Jamie Driscoll, Danny Summerhill
Katie Compton, Amy Dombroski, Kaitlin Antonneau, Georgia Gould, Meredith Miller, Jade Wilcoxson
Under 23 Men:
Zach McDonald, William Dillman, Tobin Ortenblad, Skyler Trujillo
Logan Owen, Curtis White, Maxx Chance, David Lombardo, Stephen Bassett
