Press release: 2013 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships: changes to schedule




The programme for the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships taking place in Louisville (USA) this weekend has been modified in the light of flood warnings at the competition site. All the races will now take place on Saturday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that high water levels in the Ohio River will cause Beargrass Creek to flood the low lying areas of Eva Bandman Park in Louisville, Kentucky, in the early hours on Sunday morning. The water level is expected to continue rising for the next 48 hours.

Extraordinary measures, including the construction of a temporary barrier, are ongoing to ensure that the 2013 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships races will still be held in their entirety. The Organizing Committee and the UCI together took the decision to revise the schedule. All four races will be held on Saturday February 2, starting with Men Juniors at 9:45 a.m., Elite Women at 11 a.m., Men Under-23 at 12:30 p.m., and Elite Men at 2:30 p.m.  (All times are Eastern Standard.) All Sunday tickets will be honoured at the gate on Saturday which will open at 8 a.m.

For more information, please contact Bill Kellick, Director of Communications, USA Cycling, at 719.209.8210 or bkellick@usacycling.org.
