For anyone looking to kill some or all of their day tomorrow the due to potential flooding on Sunday all the races are being held on Saturday. The race is being held on Louisville and it's the first time it's ever been held outside of Europe. The UCI is broadcasting the races live on the internet and many cycling websites (CyclingNews & CX Magazine) will have links to the coverage. The scedule for Sat is

•9:45 AM – 17-18 Junior Elite World Championships
•11:00 AM – Female Elite World Championships
•12:30 PM – U23 Elite World Championships
•2:30 PM – Male Elite World Championships


The first two races will most likely be the most exciting from a US perspective. Logan Owen has a legitimate shot at winning and Curtis White has a shot at the podium. In the women's race Katie F'n Compton is the odds on favorite for the win. She just has to beat Marianne Vos (defending world champ as well as the current world and olympic road champion). It should be a good race. To provide some context only two American men have ever podiumed in an elite world championship and no American (male or female) has ever one one.

The later races will probably be dominated by the Europeans (mostly the Belgians) but you never know. The races should be exciting with plenty of mud to keep it interesting.

Beer usually.

Just jump ahead to the 2 min mark. Although, there probably won't be any beer handups tomorrow since that is frowned on by the UCI.

OK, so neither of the first two races were close. Logan Owen took 4th and KFC took 2nd in their respective races.
